Biodiversity Duty Report
Under the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004, all public bodies are required to further the conservation of biodiversity when carrying out their responsibilities. Following an amendment in the Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Act 2011, public bodies are also required to publish a publicly available report on the actions they have taken to meet this biodiversity duty. The first report is required to be submitted by 1stJanuary 2015 with the next reporting round in 2018.
Stirling Council’s Biodiversity Duty Report 2014 summarises activities carried out to help meet our Biodiversity Duty over the period 2011-2014.
