Through ambitious programmes of habitat and species recovery, wider land stewardship and the safeguarding of existing wildlife sites, Cambridgeshire will be an exemplar for the landscape scale restoration of the natural environment.
Building on our status as one of the leading food-producing parts of the country, we will promote initiatives that foster the very best land stewardship, producing food for local and national markets and connecting farmers, communities and the farmed environment.
Cambridgeshire will have, as its foundation, thriving and healthy places to live – high-quality housing alive with green space and wildlife, that is accessible, both financially and physically to all, and with clean air and water.
Whether through tourism, land management, or scientific research such as biotechnology, putting nature at the heart of our enterprise agenda will create fulfilling forms of employment for the long-term.
The Cambridgeshire to which we aspire will have healthy communities in healthy environments. We will pioneer initiatives to ensure that green space and access to nature help people to enjoy and appreciate the nature around them, leading to healthier and happier lives.
Whether walking, cycling or riding through a network of long-distance footpaths, visiting a country park, enjoying heritage, art and culture linked to wildlife, nature will be at the heart of how we spend our leisure time in the countryside.
