Protecting our environment

We are committed to protecting and enhancing our local wildlife, to not only benefit today's residents but also future generations.

Why is conservation important

The local wildlife helps to provide and regulate essential natural resources, such as:

  • Fuel
  • Building materials
  • Food and clean water
  • Air quality and pollution
  • Pests
  • Climate control

A healthy, balanced environment lends itself to reduced stress levels and disease in the local community.

How do we help

  • We work hard to effectively manage our wildlife Sites and special areas of conservation
  • Our Conservation Volunteers do a variety of work across the wildlife areas of the borough, including repairs, footpath creation, fence installation, brook and stream management and non-native species control
  • NBBC have signed and are committed to the West Midlands Biodiversity Pledge 
  • We support the Local Biodiversity Action Plan

In our efforts to protect and enhance our borough's biodiversity, we work with a number of partners including: Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Warwickshire Local Records Centre and Warwickshire County Council.
