Steering Group

The steering group is comprised of representatives from partner organisations that contribute to the Essex Biodiversity Project financially or in terms of other resources or expertise. The group meets every four months to discuss the activities that have taken place and determine the future direction and focus of the Essex Biodiversity Project.
Our partners are an essential component of the Essex Biodiversity Project; effective implementation of the Essex Biodiversity Action Plan and the successful protection of our biodiversity could not be achieved without their input and resources. If you are interested in becoming a partner of the Essex Biodiversity Project and guiding the work of the Project, please contact Steve Plumb (Chair) or Mark Iley (Coordinator) to discuss the options.
