How does the council work with others on biodiversity issues?

East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Action Plan (ERYBAP)

The East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Action Plan (ERYBAP) sets out how we will work with our partners to conserve and enhance biodiversity in the East Riding. A lot of work has gone into producing this document which has been consulted on with local specialists, naturalists and with the public. As a partnership document, its success will be down to the participation and enthusiasm of the people involved.

East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Partnership

The East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Partnership has over 130 members, all of whom are individuals and organisations with a shared interest in biodiversity. The Partnership exists to develop and adopt the Species and Habitat Action Plans of the East Riding of Yorkshire Biodiversity Action Plan (ERYBAP), and to then implement the actions through the delivery of local biodiversity projects. A central role of the Partnership is to promote and raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity in the East Riding, and to get others involved with implementing the ERYBAP.

Environmental Management System (EMS)

Systems developed as part of the council's Environmental Management System (EMS) and Environmental Policy are used to deliver improvements for biodiversity. These improvements will allow the council to take forward many of the priorities within the ERYBAP

How does the council work with others on climate change?

Our approach to working with partner organisations, residents and businesses on climate change adaptation and mitigation is outlined in our Environmental Policy.

We work with organisations like Your Climate (Climate Change Partnership for Yorkshire and Humber), Humber Emergency Planning Service, Humber Environmental Managers’ Network and the Energy Saving Trust, plus other local authorities from across Yorkshire and the Humber where appropriate.
