There were 136 responses to the Biodiversity Survey through Citizen Space. The attached report shows these responses.





Biodiversity refers to all living things (including plants, animals, microbes and people), the places where plants and animals live (habitats), their interactions among living things (web of life) and their natural environment.

Biodiversity is the nature all around us and in our everyday life and which provides us with clean air/water, food, fuel, building products and medicines. Making space for nature in our towns and protecting nature throughout the Borough protects and enhances our local environment and improves our quality of life.

Many people are perhaps more aware of associated terms for biodiversity such as wildlife, conservation, nature, natural environment, habitats and landscapes. Biodiversity encompasses all of these and more, and enhancing and protecting all aspects of our natural environment is an hugely important aspirational and corporate objective for Ards and North Down Borough Council.

As part of our ongoing development we would be keen to find out your opinion on biodiversity and nature awareness and its importance locally. We would be grateful if you could spend a few minutes completing the following survey, the results of which will help us inform new strategies whilst also ensuring the Council delivers on its statutory duty.
