Nature Improvement Areas were a flagship policy contained in last year’s Natural Environment White Paper The Natural Choice, which set out aims to improve the quality of the natural environment across England, halt the decline in habitats and species, and strengthen the connection between people and nature. The 12 NIAs will help meet the commitment of the white paper to support the natural environment to function more effectively through joined-up action at local and national levels to create an ecological network which is resilient to changing pressures.

Significant improvements for wildlife and people will be delivered through the sustainable use of natural resources, restoring and creating wildlife habits, connecting local sites and joining up local action.
