Perth and Kinross Council has a legal duty to conserve and enhance biodiversity. Working together across all our services, we are developing the best ways to do this and, at the same time, contributing to other policies and initiatives.
As part of the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership which covers the local authority areas of Angus and Perth and Kinross we work across local authority borders to ensure continuity of delivery.
The partnership is made up of statutory bodies, local authorities, non-government organisations and individuals and has produced a Local Biodiversity Action Plan to ensure that locally and nationally important species and habitats are conserved and enhanced through focused local action.
Tayside Local Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2026
Tayside Biodiversity Partnership's Local Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2026 [12Mb] charts the way ahead in protecting the multitude of flora and fauna that flourish across the county, as well as their habitats, bringing together organisations, communities and individuals. The new plan has more than 140 projects you might want to get involved in.

This Biodiversity Duty report [371Kb] covers the 3 year period from January 2015 to December 2017. The next report will cover the period from January 2018 to December 2020.
