Event - Creating Habitats on Industrial Sites

Warning: This event has passed. Please return to the events section to view all current and future events.

Sponsored and hosted by Bridgnorth Aluminium, this event will look at methods of creating habitats on these sometimes difficult sites, including a focus on operational restrictions, as well as highlighting the opportunities that industrial and other commercial sites can offer for wildlife, especially to allow it to thrive and navigate through the landscape.  The meeting will also give an opportunity for delegates to view the grassland and wetland habitats recently installed by Bridgnorth Aluminium and learn more about how that work was planned and executed.  We have again worked hard to secure speakers who will hopefully meet your interest in this area, and we will try to ensure that we have time in the meeting for Q&A sessions in addition to the opportunities to network.  The programme for this meeting is as follows (all talks will include 5 minutes for Q&A at the end):

          10:00 - 10:30 – Coffee and networking

          10:30 - 10:45 – Welcome (Adrian Platt, MMBEN Chair)

11:10 - 11:30 – “Retrofitting habitats to commercial site - green roofs and beyond” (Maggie Fennell, Boningale Nurseries)

11:30 - 11:45 – Coffee break

11:45 - 12:15 – “The operational restrictions of creating habitat on a working industrial site and how to get round them” (Stuart Lawrence, TG Group)

12:45 - 13:00 – “How to get involved in the Meres & Mosses Business Environment Network” (Tom Hayek, MMBEN Co-ordinator)
