We all know how important pollinators are for the production of our food as well as the role they play in helping tackle the Climate Emergency.

As part of the Juniper House development we are including open space which will be pollinator friendly, as will the improved gardens at 35-41 First Avenue. The new Pocket Park at the junction of First Avenue and Hoe Street will also include plants to provide food for bees and otherf pollinators.

Waltham Forest Council is currently consulting with residents to help us draft a Pollinator Action Plan (PAP) which:

  • highlights the steps the Council proposes to take to help pollinators
  • suggests ways that residents, businesses and community groups can help pollinators

Read the Pollinator Action Plan

Before the Pollinator Action Plan is agreed we want to hear your views on the suggestions it contains and also any other ideas you think should be included.

Please complete this short survey by Monday 2 March 2020.
