MS4N is Highly Commended at BIG Biodiversity Challenge Awards
Earlier this month Melissa from MS4N and Zoe from Cormac travelled to London to represent our project at the BIG Biodiversity Challenge awards which are hosted by CIRIA, the Construction Industry Research and Information Association. These awards are designed to help raise awareness of ways to improve practices that benefit biodiversity within the construction industry and to encourage the industry to be proactive in pursuing a path of long term awareness and protection of local biodiversity.
MS4N and Cormac were up for two awards with Ridgegrove Park in Launceston being up for the Biodiversity Legacy Award, and the whole of the MS4N project up for the Habitat Creation Project of the Year Award.
Competition was fierce, the quality of submissions from across the UK was incredibly high and while, unfortunately, we didn't win in our categories we were Highly Commended in both and received great feedback from the judges!
Habitat Creation Project of the Year Award: "Special mention for the impressive scope of their project and excellent consideration of biodiversity values within the public realm, as well as a strong community focus and ongoing management considerations."
Biodiversity Legacy Award: "Special mention for connecting housing to the village using a nature-based solution."
