Wild Oxfordshire, a conservation charity, is calling for groups to protect and enhance green spaces across the country.
It says it is “set to provide you with all the information you need. Whether you’re wondering where your parish can start with its plans or you’re curious as to how you can protect and enhance your green space.”
Benson Nature Group have been working with the parish council and providing advice on how the proposed green spaces can be designed to be beneficial for both wildlife and the local community.
A series of presentations will also take place throughout the day, with talks from Edel McGurk, from the Benson Nature Group and Katie Lea from Place Studio. Local authorities, neighbourhood planning teams and expert consultants will also be present, answering questions and providing guidance.
The conference will also include a guided tour around Benson’s ecological network, which showcases Benson’s Nature Group’s achievements. The Thames Valley Records Centre will also be attending to illustrate how their data and expertise can help identify important green corridors within a neighbourhood plan area.
