Habitat Project – Greening Surrey’s urban spaces
A proposal to create community green spaces.
The Surrey Hills Society is an independent charity promoting the enjoyment and care of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They encourage people to explore and learn about the special qualities and distinctiveness of the area.
Working with the Society, we are embarking on a project that will green urban spaces in every borough and district in Surrey. These pockets of land will be developed with the local communities working with artists and ecologists to achieve spaces that are well-designed, sustainable and will greatly benefit and encourage wildlife.
This project is a direct response to climate change and the decreasing biodiversity we are facing. Each space will include sculptural habitats relevant to the area which will support insects, bats, bees, birds and other wildlife. The planting will be specifically designed with the same intention working with Surrey Wildlife Trust.
We are applying for funding from Your Fund Surrey, and you can agree or comment on our idea here:
