Kingston launches its Biodiversity Action Plan during Sustainable September

The Hogsmill in Kingston

Kingston is delighted to release its Biodiversity Action Plan for this year’s Sustainable September with its theme of ‘natural environment’.

Our Biodiversity Action Plan aims to safeguard and enhance the borough's biodiversity in the face of climate change and to protect our wide range of fantastic green spaces along with over two thousand species that call Kingston home. 

The plan highlights our commitment to local habitats and species, and outlines the necessary actions to ensure their ongoing protection and improvement for future generations. 

It also emphasises the importance of partnership which is why we are creating a Biodiversity Partnership to work together and make a difference in protecting Kingston’s natural environment. 

Councillor Ian Manders, Portfolio Holder for Climate Action and Sustainable Transport said: 

The borough’s Biodiversity Action Plan shows the council's commitment to the natural environment. 


It's up to us to help our local natural environment thrive and I hope you will support local action on tackling the climate and biodiversity crises.  Working together, we can create a greener and more sustainable future.

You can read the Biodiversity Action Plan and executive summary on our website. You can also find out more about Kingston’s commitment to biodiversity on our dedicated web pages.
