The proposal is to build a vertical garden on the wall in Bridge Yard for the enjoyment and benefit of the town’s community, visitors and businesses.
Living Walls offer not only aesthetic benefits; they improve air quality and encourage biodiversity in otherwise blank lifeless spaces.
With the Town Council’s declarations of Climate and Ecological Emergencies, and Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon urging the community to upscale its efforts to improve air quality and biodiversity in the town centre, this project presents a fantastic opportunity to do so, whilst providing a beautiful feature for visitors and residents alike. It is hoped that the wall will include a wide variety of seasonal plants, low energy LED lighting as well as birdhouses and bug hotels.
Though community members have progressed the project to contractor selection and preliminary design stage, in order to go ahead, financial support is needed to take the project through further design, planning, implementation stages, underwritten by the Town Council.
Supporting this project will see your contribution to a wonderful new green feature for the community, visitors and wildlife to enjoy for years to come.
