Ecologists at the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH) have launched a ‘Biodiversity Toolkit’ to enable housing providers and residents support wildlife on their estates.
The toolkit, which was developed by UKCEH in conjunction with Southern Housing Group and other partners, provides a range of ways to improve biodiversity on housing estates. These options can be tailored according to housing density, budget available and the level of maintenance that would be possible.
It is hoped that LLFAs and other organisations will find this toolkit a useful resource when assessing planning applications and sustainable drainage systems.
