Protecting Britain's Environment
Today the government announced a five-year delivery plan to restore nature and improve the quality of our air, waters and land, helping to build a cleaner, greener country for future generations.
- Our natural environment is fundamental to the health, economy and prosperity of our country, so we must do all we can to protect it.
- That is why today we announced our five-year delivery plan, which will ensure every household is within 15 minute’s walk of a green space, restore at least 500,000 hectares of new wildlife habitats, work with councils to improve air quality, and incentivise farmers to adopt nature-friendly practices.
- These steps will help to preserve our environment, increase our access to nature, and make Britain a healthier, greener place to live.
