New ponds for Central Park

A damp and flood-prone part of Central Park is going to be turned in to a new ‘wetland’ complex.                                                

A network of ponds and natural surface run-offs are planned for the area near the pond at the Barn Park Road entrance, turning this corner into a home for wildlife as well somewhere for people to stop at rather than walk past or jump the giant puddles that form in the Winter.

Grant funding for green minded businesses

Plymouth’s Green Minds project is giving away grants to businesses who invest in nature.

The Green Minds project, which will help to re-wild urban areas and encourage people from across the city to enjoy the health benefits from blue and green space, launches this year thanks to €4million funding grant from the European Regional Development Fund under their Urban Innovation Actions Programme.
