Kent’s Plan Bee is a pollinator action plan which has been developed by the council to take the lead and encourage local communities to improve the food sources and general habitat for pollinators in Kent. Pollinators such as bees, wasps, butterflies, moths and hoverflies are vital for our food, economy and environment and we must act to reverse their rapid decline.

The purpose of the plan is to:

  • make the council a community leader in action for pollinators
  • ensure that pollinators’ needs are always considered throughout our work and services
  • put the conservation of pollinators and their habitats at the heart of our land management and planning
  • make the council a significant contributor to the recovery of pollinator populations.

We also hope that the plan will help mobilise the people of Kent to do their bit for pollinators. Read about what you can do to help pollinators.
