Linking you to good practice for biodiversity in Kent...

Good practice for biodiversity requires that the natural environment and wildlife is central to every aspect of our day-to-day lives. It is demonstrated when biodiversity is fully considered in all developments, activities and initiatives being taken forward in Kent.

Some examples of good practice in Kent are:

Betteshanger Park

Betteshanger Park Business Development is designed to provide 22,300sqm of quality employment space and a community country park. It will accomodate a range of business types within a high quality business park environment, managed sustainably for long-term success.

Building for Nature

Increased development pressures are affecting the whole South East. SEEDA's Building for Nature project aims to minimise the impact of building development on the environment, and to seek positive gains for our wildlife in new developments.

Kent Design Guide

This good practice guide requires us to think in innovative ways about the integration of land use and transportation; of mixed-use developments and the use of 'brownfield'; the role for town centres; community participation in the development process; and the careful use of resources - such as energy and water - in the construction and the whole-life use of buildings.
