The benefits of a comprehensive approach to biodiversity in green space management are well known. It is a key part of greenspace management.
For most informal green spaces in the city, biodiversity management will be set by a combination of different management and maintenance approaches, and local needs.
Natural and semi-natural greenspaces will reflect the needs of the location. In many places patches of bramble are acceptable and a benefit, in others they can be a cause of anti-social behaviour.
Woodlands and their management will, by their nature, be a slower evolving process in terms of specific biodiversity aims. As woodlands coalesce to form wildlife corridors, and trees mature, the biodiversity values will change over time.
Biodiversity improvement is a specific Aim of this strategy.
Aim G "Build on existing city greenspace measures to channel, develop and enhance biodiversity and climate change mitigation"
