Habitat Management and Creation

We manage and create habitats for wildlife. We can offer this service or support and advise community groups and businesses.

We currently manage two of our own sites (BEES Urban Nature Reserve and Bowling Park Community Orchard) and work on behalf of the Council's Countryside and Rights of Way team to manage areas such as Boars Well Urban Wildlife Area, Baildon Moor, Brackenhill Urban Landscape Area and Reevy Mill Dam.

Most of this work is done with the BEES Conservation Volunteer Group which meets twice a week. We are able to include new projects in this programme or work directly with other community groups to create wildlife habitats and support groups in developing a sustainable management plan for areas.

We can undertake projects of varying scope and complexity. Cost will be dictated by the scheme of work. Consideration also needs to be given to the scope for managing the project in the future.
