Councils need full-time biodiversity officer

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Councils need full-time biodiversity officer Councils need full-time biodiversity officer

Open letter to Cllr Chris Robbins, leader of Waltham Forest council, and Cllr Jules Pipe, mayor of Hackney. 

We are writing to urge both Waltham Forest council and Hackney council to appoint suitably qualified, permanent, full-time biodiversity officers as a priority.

We need biodiversity officers in both boroughs to forge relationships within and beyond each council to ensure that biodiversity is given full, proper and appropriate consideration in all decision making and, specifically, that the biodiversity aspects of planning applications are scrutinised. Biodiversity is not a luxury, affordable only during the good times, but fundamental to the achievement of all policy objectives.

Our environment is our community.

We welcome your response.
