Draft Consultation Biodiversity and Heritage Strategic Plan 2020-2025

The new draft plan is available for your information and submissions are invited by 30th April 2020.

The plan has been developed in conjunction with the County Monaghan Heritage Forum, following input from the general public and other stakeholders.

This Biodiversity and Heritage Strategic Plan combines the areas of heritage and biodiversity into a strategic plan for County Monaghan.  It contains twelve priority themes for the county. These are aspects of heritage and biodiversity that are especially resonant or important for Monaghan.  An action plan is an integral part of the strategy, which will enable positive outcomes for our biodiversity and heritage.

The mission of the plan is to protect, conserve and advocate for our biodiversity and heritage, contributing to sustainable development and climate change mitigation.

Our vision by 2025 is that the role of biodiversity and heritage for climate change mitigation, sustainable communities, functioning ecosystems, health and well-being is generally accepted in the county and embedded in the activities of Monaghan County Council.

We look forward to hearing from you.
