The project aims to restore local chalk grassland habitat. It also gives residents greater access to nature by bringing the South Downs to their doorstep. Access to, and connection with, nature has positive impact on our health and well-being.
We’ve engaged with local community organisations, such as the Friends of Queens Park throughout the planning stages. These groups are helping to create and maintain the B Banks.
We've spoken to residents who live close to the new B Bank sites. Engagement activities with local schools are also planned.
We'll be inviting local schools and community groups to help bring the B Banks to life by planting chalk-loving wildflower species in 2024.
