Protecting and enhancing our green spaces and built assets
We grow, develop and create safe, attractive green spaces and build assets for play, learning, creativity and active travel while improving wildlife habitats and increasing biodiversity. This includes delivering collaborative outdoor projects with our partners, such as ‘Growing up with Quarrymill,’ a project delivered by the RSPB and funded by the Trust to engage and connect the local community, particularly children and young people, with the natural world. We encourage visitors to take advantage of our green spaces and use our fantastic facilities for your enjoyment and health. For more information on what to do and see on the estate, please visit Our Community page.
