Wilder Hampshire and Isle of Wight
We're starting a debate on what a wilder Hampshire and Isle of Wight looks like, and how we can all help make it happen.
Over the coming months we will be holding a series of debates and sharing our thinking as it develops. We will publish a more detailed plan in 2019.
But we want to start building the nature recovery network across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight now.

Have a look through our discussion paper below:
