The Urban Nature Conservation Study identifies the wildlife resources and habitats accessible to (and within) the six main settlements of the borough. It reviews existing policies and applies the standards of nature reserve provision recommended by English Nature.
The study puts forward a strategy for the protection and enhancement of key wildlife areas and a network of spaces and natural (or semi-natural) corridors for each town and large village.

A 50-year vision for the wildlife and natural habitats of Hertfordshire
The original plan, published in 1998 has been reviewed. It was relaunched at the annual meeting of the Hertfordshire Environmental Forum on 23 March 2006. The Biodiversity Action Plan sets out habitat restoration aspirations and programmes and species action plans.
The Biodiversity Action Plan will be taken forward in management programmes of various organisations, including local authorities, the Countryside Management Service, the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and the Chilterns Conservation Board.
The Hertfordshire Biodiversity Action Plan supports much of the background technical work for the Urban Nature Conservation Study (March 2006).
