A new action plan for nature in Meath - have your say!

Meath County Council is seeking your assistance with the preparation of a Biodiversity Action Plan.

Meath Council is undertaking a pre-draft public consultation on the Meath Biodiversity Action Plan 2025 – 2030. Your feedback in this consultation will be used to inform the vision, aims and actions of the plan.

Completion of this survey constitutes an official submission at this pre-draft stage of the process. A further public engagement process will take place once a draft action plan has been prepared.

Further details relating to the timeline of the process and all other aspects of the consultation can be found in the Pre-draft Public Consultation Discussion Document.

Any queries associated with the consultation should be forwarded to

What is Biodiversity?

Biodiversity is nature. Biodiversity describes the variety of life on Earth – the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and even microorganisms like bacteria that make up our natural world.

What is a Local Authority Biodiversity Action Plan?

A Local Authority Biodiversity Action Plan is designed to provide a structured approach to biodiversity conservation at the local authority level. It outlines the objectives, strategies, and actions needed to protect and enhance biodiversity within a specific local authority area.
