Nature and wildlife

The landscape proposals blend the naturalistic landscape of Ham Lands Nature Reserve and Ham Village Green, with more formal interventions as seen at Ham House and in the surrounding urban estates. Richly planted public and resident communal landscapes promote biodiversity gain, urban greening and living streets:

  • Growing spaces for residents
  • Variety of seating opportunities with some intimate spaces and larger spaces for groups
  • Spaces formed amongst hedgerows, clusters of herbaceous plants and shrubs
  • Bird and bat boxes across the scheme targeting a variety of species
  • Existing trees retained where possible to add maturity and shade
  • Specimen and fruit trees add seasonal interest
  • Safe formal and informal play spaces for young children close to homes.
