Local Nature Recovery Strategy for Berkshire – Your opportunity to contribute, and what the Club proposes.

Under the Environment Act 2021, local authorities are required to formulate a strategy to
plan nature restoration in their area. In Berkshire, the six unitary authorities have been
grouped together to formulate a strategy for their combined area, with the Royal Borough
of Windsor & Maidenhead appointed as lead authority.
A program of public consultation meetings is being undertaken across the county during
April, with meetings in Maidenhead on 8 April, Bracknell on 10 April, Slough on 16 April,
Wokingham on 20 April, Hungerford on 23 April and Reading on 25 April, with a county-wide on-line Zoom workshop on 30 April. More details of the consultation events can be found here.
The Club is participating actively in the process, and has made a written submission, a copy
of which can be found here. We hope that you will find this document helpful in informing any contribution you might wish to make and welcome your support for the suggestions we have made for planning nature restoration across the county.
