Wildlife Ways – “nature in the middle of Chelmsley Wood”
After years of planning, planting and building, Wildlife Ways – the council’s £16.8 million environmental project which covers the length and breadth of Solihull – is nearly finished. The project has seen millions of wildflower plants and bulbs planted across the borough plus extensive restorative and management work on brooks, grasslands and woodlands.
Cllr Andy Mackiewicz – Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Planning and Housing – and Cllr Ken Hawkins – Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways – visited Kingshurst Brook in Chelmsley Wood last week to see for themselves how the work there has encouraged local wildlife. They also found it had encouraged local residents to enjoy sunny picnic outings at the riverside.
