Sixteen habitats that are of importance within Northamptonshire have been selected for inclusion on the Local Biodiversity Action Plan.

Each of these habitats has a specific set of species that are associated with it, so protecting the habitat will also protect these species.

A summary of each of these action plans, including the targets and actions, can be viewed on the following pages.
