Working together for a Wilder Cheshire and Warrington
Closing date: 31 March 2024
Help us understand how nature matters to you and what actions you think could be taken to help wildlife across Cheshire and Warrington.
We want to develop a blueprint (Local Nature Recovery Strategy) to help wildlife thrive, improve our ecological network, but also target investment in nature where it could help us adapt to climate change and improve the places we live, work and play.
If you are a Farmer/ landowner with more than one hectare of land, we’d also like you to register land where you might be interested in attracting investment to help with nature’s recovery.
Your views will help us develop and focus on the main priorities and solutions for a wilder Cheshire and Warrington over the next 10 years. You have the option as to how much or little you would like to participate by completing either the survey or pledge or both together.
After completing our survey, tell us what actions you may be prepared to take to help nature on your land, register this as a pledge and pin it on our interactive map so everyone can see where action is being taken by us all, across the region.
Share your views
This survey is a chance for you, your community, business, or organisation to tell us what matters to you and what you think we might need to concentrate on.
Your views will help shape the priorities, solutions, and collaborative work we intend to develop to meet the challenges faced by nature, or opportunities where nature could help us tackle economic, health, community, or environmental issues we face.
There are only 10 questions. Register your email to stay in touch with progress and be notified of future opportunities to get involved as we evolve potential priorities and measures.
Pledge your action for Nature
After completing our survey above, share what difference you intend to make for nature by registering this as a pledge. Pin this on the interactive map so everyone can see the huge number of actions we are taking together to make a difference for nature throughout the county.
Tell us what actions you plan to take
*If the pledge is done on public land, please make sure that this will or has been given consent by the local authority of the borough.
Call for sites – to invest in nature
Would you like land you own to be looked at to see if it should be included in areas mapped as a priority area for investment in nature’s recovery? If so, register this land with us.
Sites will be kept confidential and not shared on any public platform. But knowing where landowners may be prepared to work with the local planning authorities within Cheshire & Warrington will help us map achievable priority areas to target vital improvements to the ecological network. Sites incorporated in broader published priority zones featured in the final strategy should find it easier to attract funding support, becoming a focus for Biodiversity Net Gain investment or the targeting of support from future Agri-Environment Schemes.
Please state in the contact details whether you are a tenant or the landowner. If you are a tenant, please confirm that the landowner is in agreement with your proposals.
Please see the document attached for some information on grants currently available.
If you would like help finding advice or support to develop your ideas and proposals, please let us know and we’ll try and put you in touch with the correct organisation that may be able to help you.
What happens next?
After you have completed the questionnaire, we will undertake an analysis of the results before deciding on what are the main priorities that everyone deems most important to help with nature recovery for Cheshire. Your contact details will be used to provide you with updates on the progress of the Local Nature Recovery Strategy.
For our farmers and landowners, we will be in contact once you have submitted your potential investment for nature site.
