Action Plans

What is the LBAP?

The Pembrokeshire Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) has been drawn up in order to improve the status of sensitive habitats and species. You can download part 1 of the LBAP (excluding actions plans) here.

To implement the plan the Pembrokeshire Biodiversity Partnership has been formed comprising statutory and non-statutory organisations including land-owning, farming, fishing and conservation interests.

Action Plans

Pembrokeshire LBAP will be delivered via individual Habitat Action Plans (HAPs) and Species Action Plans (SAPs). Lead organisations / individuals will be identified to implement the action plans set out in the individual HAPs and SAPs. The successful implementation of these will require a partnership with local communities, industry, commerce and individuals.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to receive the complete LBAP document by e-mail contact
