Since 1963 we have been standing up for Nottinghamshire’s wildlife and representing the views of people who care passionately about our county’s wild places.
We care for over 70 nature reserves across the county, including a mixture of valuable wildlife habitats ranging from beautiful wildflower meadows to splendid ancient woodlands.
We engage the local community through events, education and volunteering opportunities and seek to ensure our county is a healthy and wildlife rich place to live.
We are a leading voice in standing up for wildlife and the environment.
Particular attention is given to positively influencing the planning process at the district, county and regional levels.
The threats facing wildlife are ever increasing, particularly those relating to development and climate change. A key element of reducing the harm inflicted on the natural world is through maintaining active involvement within the planning system and working in partnership with key decision makers. We act on behalf of the county’s wildlife to prevent immediate threats and influence policy decisions to ensure the best deal for our natural heritage in the future.
In addition to monitoring applications we offer advice to planners and developers on how to reduce the impact on wildlife and mitigate any unavoidable damage.
