Working with partners, Nature After Minerals is here to offer and share best-practice advice on biodiversity-led minerals restoration.
Trent and Tame River Valleys
How Minerals Local Plans can help give nature a home on a landscape scale in the Trent and Tame River Valleys. The Trent and Tame River Valleys will once again be one of Britain’s greatest wetlands, providing a wetland artery for wildlife, flowing from source to sea in an attractive, multi- functional and inspiring landscape loved and valued by all.
Positive planning for nature after minerals
From dragonflies to marsh harriers, otters to orchids, many mineral sites are outstanding places for wildlife. But by working together, mineral planners, mineral operators and conservation organisations can do even more to bring mineral sites to life for people and wildlife.
Engagement with local communities, conservation groups and other stakeholders is a key part of the planning process for new mineral extractions.
Our Case Studies pages showcase the great work which is already being undertaken across the minerals and planning sectors to help enhance and protect the natural world and leave a lasting legacy for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.
