Newly Broken Ground
Newley broken ground following new developments is the perfect areas for sowing wildflowers, It is better that converting grassed areas and plants thrive better. I would encourage part of planning must ensure that biodiversity on a new development should always be included.
Why the contribution is important
Most developments have turf or tarmac for parking - neither do anything for biodiversity and more and more home owners are creating bigger driveways reducing space for wildlife and our fight for encouraging green space. Meadows and frasslands were an intrinsic part of British agriculture but now equates to only 1% in the UK. We cannot prevent existing home owners tarmacing or reducing their garden spaces but we could ensure planning protects green space and connects it with communities.
