Councillor Lourda Scott welcomes the announcement of funding for Wicklow, through the Local Biodiversity Action Fund (LBAF), to conduct biodiversity projects in the county.
The two projects in receipt of funding are Dune Management and Education (€32,700) and a Hedgerow Survey (€15,300).
Dune Management and Education: The focus of the 2022 Brittas Bay Conservation Project is to continue to implement an annual programme of works as per the management recommendations drafted in 2018. In addition to the conservation management and monitoring elements it is planned to initiate enhanced community engagement elements and to address onsite interpretation and messaging.
Hedgerow Survey: Wicklow County Council proposes to initiate a Countywide hedgerow survey to address this information gap in the county.
Councillor Scott says, “As Chair of the Climate & Biodiversity Action Strategic Policy Committee, I know that engagement with communities and local authorities is vital for the success of the National Biodiversity Action Plan.
“This funding will help support implementation of the plan in Wicklow. Having declared a Biodiversity emergency in 2019 this is particularly welcome.”
