ERDF Solihull Habitat and Nature Improvements Project
In 2017 Solihull Council was successful with a funding application to the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to undertake a wide range of habitat and nature improvement projects across the borough.
The application was made under the ERDF Priority Axis 6d: Preserving and Protecting the Environment and is improving 100 hectares of habitat.
The three year programme of woodland, grassland, wetland and water quality improvements has been delivered across publicly accessible green space within Solihull.
The funding has been used to undertake 22 individual habitat improvement schemes that collectively increase and strengthen the capacity of the natural environment to deliver ecosystem services across the region. All of the proposed schemes are located in the urban areas of Solihull.
The Environment Agency and Warwickshire Wildlife Trust are strategic partners on the delivery of the project.
