Issue details


The Environment, Climate Emergency and Transport Committee approved the Council’s Environment & Climate Emergency Policy in March 2021 since then officers have been putting arrangements in place and taking action, to progress the Policy’s objectives and commitments.


This report seeks the approval and endorsement of the Wirral Pollinator Strategy, which supports the Council’s biodiversity commitment within the policy, ‘Transforming our Open Spaces and Enhancing Biodiversity'. This strategy has been developed to raise awareness of the plight of pollinators and to ensure the Council and its local residents, businesses and landowners are provided with information to help us all protect and increase our pollinator populations.


Wirral Council is committed to helping to conserve the UK’s pollinators by ensuring the council considers the needs of pollinators in the delivery of its duties and activities. This strategy is designed to ensure the needs of pollinators are enshrined across the breadth of Council work and to increase awareness of pollinators across our local community.
