Build, build, build

Our Chief Ecologist, Dr Phoebe Carter, has recently been interviewed by Radio 4 as part of the work she undertakes with Building with Nature on the impact of the Government’s ‘Build, Build, Build’ mandate.

Phoebe discusses the importance of having an upfront plan when it comes to ecology, ‘working out what you have on site and how to protect it.’ Phoebe goes on to explain how Habitat First Group always prioritises nature – prior to and during the building process – and addresses some of the many species we protect and house on our country estates.

The full show is available here and Phoebe is introduced at Lower Mill Estate at about nineteen and a half minutes into the programme.
