HAB Keeps it Green in Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust Case Study Posted 14/11/17 Following HAB’s latest scheme Elderberry Walk’s feature in Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s (GWT) magazine, we are proud to announce that the new development has been officially selected as a case study for GWT’s Building with Nature initiative. HAB and GWT’s values align when it comes to the UK housing crisis. The need for new housing is undeniable, but we face the challenge of creating enjoyable places that encompass wonderful homes and a protected and enriched local environment, where people can live happy, healthy lives. GWT has launched Building with Nature to help new schemes break the mould, and become more sustainable. GWT are working with housing planners and developers to better understand green infrastructure, and it also promotes the wider natural environment, which is often viewed as a hold-up to development. Elderberry Walk in Southmead, Bristol, will incorporate a number of green features in line with GWT’s Building with Nature benchmark, including communal green spaces, a green corridor, and existing trees and hedgerows will form the site’s border. Elderberry Walk begins construction in the next few months, and you can register your interest now. For more information on GWT’s Building with Nature benchmark, visit their website.
