New properties to be built in Bristol after wildlife is relocated

New properties to be built in Bristol after wildlife is relocated

Thanks to a wildlife relocation project, work on a new housing development in Bristol remains ongoing.

The Jephson Housing Association is constructing 32 new residences in the Shirehampton area, meaning there will be more property for sale in Bristol soon.

It was discovered that over 100 slow worms and other wildlife were present on the construction site and so environmental planning and design company the Landmark Practice was called in to create a buffer habitat.

This was enhanced by the improvement of existing hedgerows and with the planting of native trees and flowers around the perimeter of the area.

The housing project is located on a disused allotment site and it has received funding from the Homes and Communities Agency - which was formed on December 1st 2008 and operates with an annual budget in excess of £5 billion.

In total, £5.2 million is being spent on the project.
