Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership (LNP) is a Partnership of those who are working to maintain the special and unique environment of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The LNP considers the environment in its broadest sense and draws expertise from a wide range of sectors, including the environment, health and wellbeing, education, and the economy. The Partnership has already forged strong links with the economic sector, via the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnerships (CISLEP) and the two Health and Wellbeing Boards in the area.

CIoSLNP has the following guiding principle: The culture, communities and environment of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly remain special and unique.

The CIoSLNP Priorities are:

  1. To facilitate agreement on the optimum use of environmental assets to realise their local, national and global potential
  2. To build environmental skills, knowledge and understanding to increase the value of the environment in local communities and the economy
  3. To connect people, processes and communications to improve decision making, efficacy and behaviours with respect to the environment
  4. To grow the natural environment responsibly as a key economic asset, boosting biodiversity and increasing ecosystem goods and services
