Section 6 Biodiversity Duty Reporting

Public authorities are required to produce a report on what they have done to comply with the section 6 duty. The first reporting round deadline was the end of 2019, the second reporting round deadline is the end of 2022.

Every public authority is free to choose their own way of reporting. You can incorporate your report as part of your ordinary reporting systems such as an annual report, or as a specific, standalone document. Welsh Government has produced reporting Guidance which includes a suggested format, content and a template, for recording the actions taken, together with listing possible ways of monitoring and measuring the indicators that might be used.

The guidance also includes information to assist in reviewing your s6 plan following reporting.
