ALERC responded to the consultation on behalf of LRCs in England. It was thought that LRC data could be better used to report against several indicators, and this was reflected in the response.
The consultation period is now over and Defra have released a document containing the responses and a list of the changes to the indicators due to the results of the consultation. Of particular interest to LRCs will be the development of an indicator for the integration of biodiversity into local planning decision making. This will be developed further over the next two years.
Full details can be found at the Defra website here. The original ALERC response can be found here.
