In 2018 work began on our very first biodiversity net gain project at Kidbrooke Village.
Our aim was to transform a neat and tidy 20-acre urban park into a wilder and more varied natural landscape, working in close partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, London Wildlife Trust and HTA Landscape Architecture.
It was a big challenge. But, as this video explores, the results are hugely positive on many different levels and the site has so far delivered a 100% biodiversity net gain, which could rise as high as 250% in the coming years.
Kidbrooke Village was the first of many and we are applying our approach to biodiversity net gain to 49 different sites across London, Birmingham and the South of England. Together, they will create more than 500 acres of new or measurably improved natural habitats - an area greater than Hyde Park.
