Upcoming Events for the New Year! Online Briefings and In-person Workshops

15 December 2023

At the start of 2024, we will be hosting a number of online briefing sessions to provide an introduction to the LNRS.  Aimed at a variety of different groups, each hour-long briefing will explain why it’s so important to have your participation and input to the Strategy development.  There will also be the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have.  The following sessions will run in the first few weeks of January:

  • Businesses – 10th Jan, 1pm
  • Landowners, farmers, growers and producers – 10th January, 4pm
  • Developers – 11th Jan, 9am
  • District and borough councils – 11th Jan, 12pm
  • Town and parish councils – 16th Jan, 7pm
  • Community groups, Kent species recorders and environmental volunteers (third sector organisations and groups)  – 18th January, 10am
  • Water management authorities, businesses, agencies and organisations – 18th Jan, 3pm
  • Environmental charities, organisations and government agencies – 19th January, 10am


Following the online briefings, we will be running our first series of workshops to explore what outcomes Kent and Medway wants to see for our nature.  We want as many people in Kent as possible to come together to create what will essentially be a long list of priorities for nature recovery – the county’s nature recovery “wish list”.  We will be discussing what the key matters of concern are, what the strategy needs to address and what a different, more healthy and diverse natural environment looks like for the county.  There will be six workshops throughout the county, run over this period –

East Kent area – 30th January @ Chilham Village Hall, Chilham

South Kent area – 1st February @ Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, Ashford

North Kent area – 6th February @ Riverside Country Park, Gillingham

West Kent area – 8th February @ Shorne Country Park, Gravesend

Central Kent area – 20th February @ NIAB, West Malling
