The St Rumbold’s Fields developer is planning to donate homes for bees, bugs and hedgehogs in Buckingham countryside.
The house builder is ‘committed to making sure wildlife has the opportunity to thrive in our areas’.
These plans involve a bee home, hedgehog home, and a bug hotel, to be donated to Buckingham Canal Society and will be installed along the canal towpath.
Barratt homes is building the new St Rumbold’s Fields development in the town, and alongside these plans have also donated £250 to the Canal Society to help with the upkeep of the areas around the canal.
Spokesperson for the society Athina Beckett said: “We are incredibly grateful to Barratt North Thames for donating money towards maintenance tools, as these are costly and something that we were in desperate need of to keep our vital restoration going.”
The restored canal will create connections between existing wildlife habitats and provide aquatic and wetland habitats for endangered species.
