Making Space for Nature

The Making Space for Nature project is enhancing 24 spaces in seven towns to create havens for bees, butterflies, birds and hedgehogs. The project also seeks to improve access for people.

Part of our ambition is to make sure we take people with us. If you live close to any of these spaces, we'd appreciate your involvement. New dates for our gardening drop-in groups have just been added for May - see the Key Dates on the sidebar.

Green Infrastructure for Growth 2 is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

    Making Space for Nature aims to improve green spaces in Cornish towns, increasing their wildlife value, accessibility and community enjoyment. 

     

    At Trelawney Park we want to create a vibrant space that serves multiple purposes for the community and nature – increasing people’s desire to spend time there.

    Introducing blossoming trees and shrubs and a variety of bulbs will bring a longer season of colour – with habitat for pollinators to boot.

    Cornish varieties of apple and plum trees will link to Penryn’s heritage as a town of orchards. 

    Habitat enhancement will respect the riverside location with planting and retention of dead vegetation to provide space for amphibians, insects and birds. 

    Please view the concept plan from the documents on this website and complete the on-line survey.

    This open space forms part of the Falmouth Green Corridor linking Tregoniggie Woodland with Swanpool.

     As part of the Making Space for Nature project, we would like to introduce new trees, wildflower meadow and improve the wooded area beside the informal football pitch.  This should increase its value for wildlife and visitors.  Our aims are to improve urban green spaces increasing their wildlife value, accessibility and community enjoyment.  We are hoping to deliver this in autumn 2021.  

    The survey closed on 19 March 2021.  Results from this survey and postal survey received will be posted at the site once completed.  This is likely to be in mid April 2021.

    Please have a look at the draft landscape plan on the main page which will be amended to take account of comments received in the survey.  

    Alongside the planting plans, the Transport team is considering laying a pedestrian and cycle path alongside the woodland area.   This would be subject to a separate consultation as part of a planning application but we would welcome your initial views on this proposal.

    Kinsman Estate and Treningle View

    The Making Space for Nature project aims to improve many urban green spaces in Cornish towns, increasing their wildlife value, accessibility and community enjoyment. 

     

    We are planning new planting to increase the ecological and social value of Kinsman Estate and Treningle View. The new planting will increase species diversity compared to existing amenity grass, providing habitat for pollinators, garden birds and small mammals for instance. Blossoming trees and bulbs will bring a long-season of colour to the planting scheme.   

    Please have a look at the draft landscape plan in the documents section the main project page and then complete this survey to give us your views. 

    We are hoping to begin works in autumn 2021. Please note that these plans are INDICATIVE only and subject to feedback from this consultation.

    Copies of the designs are also available to view on-site, beside the community hub building.

    Saracen Way Woodland (in the Glasney Valley, Penryn)

    The Making Space for Nature project aims to improve urban green spaces in Cornish towns, increasing their wildlife value, accessibility and community enjoyment. 

     

    In the woodland between Brook Place and Saracen Way, Penryn, we are planning enhancements that will improve resilience of the landscape to the impacts of climate change and increase its social value.  


    To download a plan please go to the documents section of the main project page. 


    Plans include a robust replacement bridge from College Hill that will enhance connectivity through the valley. Likewise, we are considering improving accessibility via the path from Brook Place, with sensitively planned habitat enhancement on the south side of the river.


    Native species understory planting will create the next generation of trees. Improving ground cover of native species will help limit growth of invasive species. 


    Around the path from Saracen Way, ideas include planting of perennials, berries and fruit trees resembling a forest garden. 


    Please complete the survey to feedback your views as soon as possible.

    Thank you!
