Improve natural drainage and create more green space in urban areas.

We’re looking to work with communities in areas prone to localised flooding. We want to transform paved or hard surfaces into green spaces that will reduce surface water runoff and boost biodiversity.

The package will include:

  • Two SuDS specific planters (1.6m x 0.6m). This will require a building with down pipes.
  • Native tree pack (105 trees)
  • Five native pot planted trees
  • 20m2 of wildflower turf (SuDS specific)
  • Two raised beds made of wooden sleepers (approximately 2.4m x 10m)
  • Variety of hand tools to install and maintain garden.

We’ll help you identify problem areas and provide practical support with planting. 

The minimum area required for this package is 290 square metres.

This is a large-scale project, so please make sure you read our guidance carefully before applying.
