Key Outcomes of the Project
Sulham Woodmeadows Project
We are collaborating with Sulham Estate in West Berkshire for a habitat restoration project across 130ha of former arable farmland. This is creating a significant number of Biodiversity units for sale.
This work will transform the existing cropland into a mosaic of biodiverse habitats. By providing a regional offering of high quality BNG units the estate has begun a transformation that not only creates habitat but also wider community engagement opportunities for local schools and community groups.
Further benefits include a significant contribution to soil health, air quality and carbon sequestration in a strategically important area to the west of Reading. The site will remain ‘farmed’ with grazing livestock and haymaking. The design and management of the scheme is sympathetic to the wider landscape of the AONB.
