GGG Cllr Catherine Young’s long-term win on biodiversity and environment at November full council

Updated: Nov 22

Guildford’s Corporate Plan for 2021 to 2025 has just been published. It’s a slim document at just 20 pages including illustrations and photographs. But its length belies its importance and the work that’s been going on since 2019 to complete it.

Cllr Catherine Young is especially proud that due to her insistence, the Environmental Theme has been extended to include a fourth Corporate Priority as follows:

“Make every effort to protect and enhance our biodiversity and natural environment”, with a bumble bee used as the linking symbol.

She then went on to ensure that a measure of success was included, to enable the Council to be held accountable for delivering net gains in biodiversity and natural habitats. See pages 13 and 18 of the published Plan here:
