Buildings for Biodiversity

Buildings can be great places for wildlife, as well as people. Working with landowners, land managers, planners and developers we are developing advice on how best to retain or add nest and roost sites for birds and bats in residential, commercial and agricultural buildings. This includes guidance on managing neighbouring areas of habitat for the benefit of these birds and bats. We are also working with timber treatment and pest control companies to raise awareness of the effects of the chemicals they use, and provide guidance on how to minimise the negative effects of these chemicals.

The Tay Landscape stretches from Newburgh on the south side of the Tay Estuary around to Perth and along the Carse to Dundee.

The project, a £2.6 million initiative is principally funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, will enable locals and visitors to reconnect with the natural, built and cultural heritage of the area.
