Increasing the capacity of the natural environment to adapt to climate change is a key priority for Natural England. The planning system is starting to consider climate change issues, though policies and plans tend to focus on preventing the causes of change rather than adapting to them. The aim of this report is to help identify the role the planning system could play in helping biodiversity adapt to climate change.
