The England Peat Action Plan sets out the government’s long-term vision for the management, protection and restoration of our peatlands, so that they provide a wide range of benefits to wildlife, people and the planet. To implement this vision, the plan includes:
- the announcement of the Nature for Climate Peatland Grant Scheme through the Nature for Climate Fund;
- a commitment to end the use of peat in the amateur horticulture sector;
- a new spatial map of England’s peatlands.
The action plan is part of a series of announcements on nature and climate and sits alongside the England Trees Action Plan.
