Having designed the landscape infrastructure for Green Park, PLACE was commissioned to manage the maintenance of the Park. In 2007 the practice worked closely with ecologists to prepare a unique Green Park Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP), which informs management practice and provides scope for evolutionary planting. It also covers detailed working procedures for further enhancement of the Park, including plant selection based on conservation and bio-diversity principles, such as planting wild flower meadows and the expansion of reed beds around Longwater. The site is now home to over 50 bird species as well as deer and badgers.
