Built-up areas and gardens - Actions

We want to encourage those responsible for buildings, green spaces and brownfield sites and the development of urban areas to recognise their value for wildlife and take action accordingly.

We call for ...


Owners and managers of land and buildings: Manage grounds to benefit biodiversity and create areas for wildlife

Developers: enhance biodiversity and produce a net gain in their developments.

Barnsley council as a planning authority:

Individuals: support wildlife where they live

Voluntary groups and volunteers: help with improvements to built-up areas, parks and public green spaces for wildlife, and help provide records of the wildlife seen there.
