Strategic Planning for Landscape-Scale Conservation Symposium

This Bat Conservation Trust event aims to share knowledge and best practice regarding strategic, landscape-scale planning for biodiversity (not just bats). It is now widely recognised that we need to act at a landscape-scale to create ecological networks and fulfil the Lawton vision of more, bigger, better and joined sites for nature conservation.

As with previous built environment symposia, we are looking for attendance from a diverse audience representing a cross section of the industries involved in strategic planning for landscape-scale conservation.


The event will be hosted by Carol Williams, Director of Conservation at the Bat Conservation Trust and the full programme will be released in due course.

Session topics will be:

  • Ecological Networks and Green Infrastructure.
  • Strategic Planning Around Natura 2000 Sites.
  • Strategic Planning for Species and Species Groups.
  • LERCs, Local Plans and Lighting.

The programme will include speakers from:

  • Warwickshire County Council.
  • Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.
  • The National Forest Company.
  • Greengage.
  • Devon County Council.
  • Hampshire County Council.
  • Amphibian and Reptile Conservation.
  • Buglife.
  • Cardiff University.
  • Association of Local Environmental Record Centres.
  • Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
