Magpie 20 – Wildlife Advisory Group Approved

Anon. (1991) Wildlife Advisory Group Approved.  Magpie, 20 p.9

Wildlife Advisory Group Approved

During 1990 Bury Metropolitan Borough Council’s Planning Committee proposed that the Director of Planning convene a Wildlife Advisory Group (WAG). This is seen as a forum of wild-life groups – who can look at wildlife and planning issues in co-operation with officers in the Planning Department. We congratulate Dave Bentley, of the Bury Wildlife and Countryside Action Group, and others, for their hard work in bringing this about. If all goes well, the WAG should ensure that wildlife finds its deserved place in Bury and is protected from adverse development. Manchester City could also benefit from a WAG, but to set one up takes time and energy and time seems to be at a premium just now. Maybe the Environmental Forum, which has its first meeting in September, will address some of the problems./
