Assisted by other agencies, parties and partners, The Board has conducted a biodiversity audit of its drainage district in the East Midlands Lincolnshire Fenland, and identified those species and habitats that would benefit from particular management regimes or actions.  Following the audit, a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) was developed using information collected from a selection of the 700km+ of drains and sewers the Board maintains.  It identified objectives set out in a Procedural Plan for the continued conservation and enhancement of biodiversity within the wider drainage district, and goes on to describe targets and appropriate actions and outcome measures that will deliver these objectives.

A Summary of the full BAP is shown below:
