Enhance and Protect Nature with a Biodiversity Action Plan

Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) Framework to be Presented to Hamilton City Council

Environment Hamilton and the Hamilton Naturalists' Club have been exploring what such a plan could look like since May 2018. Such a plan includes working with community partners, residents, municipal staff, and councillors to improve and protect habitat and restoration through municipal policy.  To lead this discussion, we have a Biodiversity Working Group that comprises local conservation groups and City of Hamilton Public Works and Planning and Economic Development staff. 
On February 19, 2020, the City’s General Issues Committee (GIC) passed a motion directing that City staff investigate the feasibility and resources required to develop a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP), in collaboration with the conservation community and provide a report back with the findings. The Planning Department will be presenting the Biodiversity Action Plan Feasibility Framework to the GIC on April 7th 2021.
