The Midlands Region covers a rich diversity of urban and rural landscapes and culture. Extending from the Humber to the Severn Estuary, it includes Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Stoke on Trent, Coventry, Shrewsbury, Stratford on Avon, Worcester and Gloucester, as well as the wild uplands of the Peak District and the agricultural plains of Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
The main pressures on the Midlands environment are from:
- pollution, as more cars take to the road
- climate change caused by global warming, and
- increasing calls on essential water resources.
Pressures from flooding, land contamination, and volumes of waste also add to the challenges we face.
Regional partnerships will play an ever more important role in moving towards a sustainable future for the Midlands.
