Neighbourhood planning: a guide for hedgehog conservation


One page sheet suggesting how Neighbourhood planning could play an important role in protecting green networks for hedgehogs and other wildlife within planning policy. it provides a suggested statement to use as a template in Neighbourhood Plans, allowing local people to clearly state in the plan that both the presence and continuity of green space is a priority for local people and local wildlife. Although this is developed for Warwickshire, it could be used as a model in other areas.
