Protecting and enhancing our natural environment
Protecting and enhancing our natural environment is a key part of the work we do at Bracknell Forest. Below are some highlights of our work that impacts climate change.
A3095 Wild Way Project
The A3095 Wild Way Project will concentrate on replanting areas of felled Pine along the roadside with native broad-leaved species in a way that will minimise the view of the road. Evergreen species will also be planted.
A322 Downshire Way Greenway
The Parks and Countryside team worked in partnership with the Transport Department on the A322 Downshire Way scheme. This helped deliver environmental improvement works whilst offsetting the essential removal of trees.
We published our tree strategy.
Local Flood Risk Management Strategy
We published the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy, including requirements for Sustainable Urban Drainage systems (SUDs).
Suitable Alternative Natural Green Spaces
We increased the number of Suitable Alternative Natural Green Spaces (SANGs) within the borough to help mitigate and reduce visits to Special Protection Areas (SPAs) and better protect their biodiversity.
Parks and Open Spaces strategy
We published our Parks and Open Spaces Strategy, which includes climate change mitigations.
Biodiversity Action Plan
We published the Biodiversity Action Plan which includes climate change mitigations.
