September 2010 – New Biodiversity Officer employed by London Borough of Tower Hamlets
Tower Hamlets Council now has a Biodiversity Officer. John Archer, formerly of London Ecology Unit and the Greater London Authority’s biodiversity team, started work towards the end of September. He will be responsible for overseeing delivery of the borough’s local biodiversity action plan, as well as providing advice to the Council and others on a wide range of issues affecting biodiversity. John will also keep the Tower Habitats website up to date, and organise events to help residents enjoy the borough’s wildlife and green spaces.
If you have any ideas on how to improve this website, to make it a really interesting, dynamic website that people will want to keep visiting, or have interesting items of news or events relating to the borough’s wildlife, please let John know.
John works part-time, usually on Mondays, Tuesdays and alternate Wednesdays, and can be contacted on 020 7364 7478 or by e-mail.
