GAZELEY SUSTAINABILITY
BIODIVERSITY
AND HABITAT
For over 30-years, Gazeley have been committed to incorporating biodiversity
and encouraging habitat into developments and parks.
Each development site presents different challenges and opportunities. Gazeley
work hard with their environmental, ecology and landscape experts to address
the environmental effects, both during construction and in operation. Particular
focus is on landscaping, ecology, the management of water, heritage, transport,
ground conditions, noise and air quality - amongst other factors!
In terms of landscaping, Gazeley is well known for well-considered landscaped
developments. Strong belief is placed on providing the right balance of
landscaping for developments using native plant species wherever possible
grown from certified seed sourced from the Forest Commission’s relevant
regional seed zone. Where possible, Gazeley also supply a nursery stock grown
from seed sourced locally.
Plant species are selected from the British Beekeeping Association’s list of
bee-friendly species including trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs/corms.
Where applicable developments include on-site apiaries that support bee
population by providing a suitable habitat. In turn, local crops will benefit from
increased pollination. Gazeley harvest the honey produced and it has become a
very popular amongst both customers and the Gazeley team!
