Surrey’s rich heritage of wildlife and natural beauty is valued by both its residents and visitors. Surrey is also a popular place to live and work and is an economic powerhouse that supports the national economy.  At the Surrey Nature Partnership we are linking organisations and individuals across the county to form an influential partnership with the aim of conserving and enhancing our natural assets, which underpin the county’s health, well-being and economic success.

Local Nature Recovery Strategy

We will be working on producing the Local Nature Recovery Strategy for Surrey with Surrey County Council as the Responsible Authority. We are have received the updated LNRS guidance from DEFRA. We will also be following the LNRS sections of the Environment Act 2021.

Natural Capital

The natural capital approach is intended to drive a “new way of achieving systemic investment” in Surrey’s natural and environmental assets, and aims to mobilise local delivery within a strategic framework. 

We have now published our Natural Capital Investment Plan for Surrey which sets out the actions required to achieve healthy natural assets in Surrey over the next 25 years.

Working Group and Forums

Our partnership is made up of our governing Board plus several ‘working groups’, that are responsible for taking our work forward in particular areas. These groups are made up of members with extensive expertise in the relevant field. Notices and publications of the various working groups appear on this page.
