Biodiversity in Lambeth

Find out about Lambeths wide variety of wildlife (biodiversity) and what we can all do to preserve it. 

Biodiversity and climate changes are becoming increasingly important in our lives.

Lambeth is rich in diverse wildlife and habitats, and we're committed to protecting and maintaining the natural environment on our doorstep for generations to come.

Lambeth Biodiversity Action Plan (Lambeth BAP)

The Lambeth Biodiversity Action Plan (Lambeth BAP) is a key policy document outlining our vision for biodiversity in the region.

Lambeth Biodiversity Action Plan 2019-24 (PDF 13.3MB)

The document provides an in-depth analysis on biodiversity within Lambeth and looks at: 

  • the benefits of biodiversity to our economy, culture and personal wellbeing
  • our plans for the future
  • local habitats and areas of interest
  • conservation areas
  • tree preservation orders

It also includes resources, policy guidance and the various ways we can all encourage biodiversity.

Read the Lambeth Biodiversity Action Plan 2020 update (PDF 1.8MB) to find how we are delivering the plan in partnership with our residents and stakeholders.
