Pollinators in Carnaby
Following the launch of the Wild West End biodiversity collaboration with other property owners, Shaftesbury has implemented a pollinator project across Carnaby. Initiatives include installing 25 mixed-species sedum pods on roofs and planting pollinator friendly species in 635 window boxes, 98 planters and 46 hanging baskets.
- Encouraging bees and other pollinators back into London’s West End
- Creating opportunities for residents, visitors and workers to enjoy nature
- Shortlisted for CIRIA’s Big Biodiversity Challenge Pollinator Award 2016
"When biodiversity is planned, our initiatives prove nature can thrive in urban environments. Our Pollinator project in Carnaby shows that even small scale enhancements, such as sedum pods, hanging baskets and window boxes, can enhance biodiversity and create a better environment for people.”
