Project governance and delivery structure

The Local Nature Recovery Strategy’s development must be evidence-led and collaborative, with wide involvement of public, private and voluntary sectors.  The work should be transparent and inclusive, with clear communications.  A governance and delivery structure has been created to ensure that the Kent & Medway Local Nature Recovery Strategy:

  • meets the requirements of the regulations and statutory guidance;
  • benefits from the knowledge and expertise within the county, to ensure it is technically sound; and
  • engages all stakeholders along the way, so there is the support and buy-in that will be required to see the successful delivery of the Strategy’s priorities.

The development of the Strategy will be locally led and collaborative. The project will work with those that own and manage the land; those that influence how biodiversity is protected and enhanced; those that use and depend on nature’s services; and those that inform and make decisions. By being informed by stakeholders’ priorities, data, information and knowledge, we will create a strategy the presents a plan for joined-up action to recover our county’s nature.
