Kew Haha: Community Consultation

  • September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
  • Free
  • Habitats & Heritage event

Habitats & Heritage are leading a project to turn the Kew Haha into a Green Hub- thriving biodiversity hot spots in a currently under-utilised space.

Working with the Old Deer Park management and supported by the North Richmond councillors we are now looking to talk with residents to find out the changes  you would like to see.

On Tuesday 28th September we are holding a drop in consultation from 6pm – 7:30 pm at Old Deer Park Sports Ground for everyone to have their say and raise any concerns that they might have. Come and tell us your thoughts and hear some of the suggestions for the site and find out how you might be able to get involved.

By improving these small areas, we are able to offer increased food sources and shelter to pollinators, birds or hedgehogs. By increasing the biodiversity, these spaces can support, we are expanding the green corridor of South West London. The Hubs created will act as stepping-stones for large green spaces combating the effects of fragmentation (the breakdown of continuous habitats) due to urban development.  We hope to inspire and enable communities to take small actions that make a difference.

This is a great initiative to improve the environmental and community value of streets and underutilised spaces, greening the grey, off-setting new developments. The project will be creating new green spaces and pollinator friendly planting. Pollinators are crucial to a healthy environment have an extremely important role in eco system services.
