Supporting No Mow May

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we are supporting British conservation charity Plantlife’s ‘No Mow May’ initiative. During May, we’ll be creating greener, healthier communities across various developments in Manchester, London, South Wales, the North Thames and the North Midlands.

Helping nature to thrive

To foster biodiversity, at our developments Rothwells Farm in Wigan, East Hollinsfield in Middleton, Weston Gate in Hitchin and The Heath in Codicote, we have committed to allowing grasslands to grow in designated areas. We will be actively encouraging residents and visitors to appreciate the natural landscapes and observe the diverse array of wildflowers and wildlife in unmown grasslands.

Similar initiatives are underway in South Wales, demonstrated by Elgar Place in Hereford and Clare Garden Village in Cowbridge.

Joining this commendable practice are Taylor Wimpey London developments, including Handley Gardens in Maldon, Samphire Meadow in Walton-on-the-Naze, and Westland Heath in Sudbury.

Across our North Midlands developments, we are distributing seed packs to residents as part of an outdoor competition initiative to help encourage residents to enhance their local environment with vibrant natural habitats right at their doorstep.

Prizes will be awarded to participants who demonstrate excellent creativity, dedication and impact in nurturing their green spaces. These prizes serve as recognition for the positive contributions made towards enhancing biodiversity and fostering a sense of community within our North Midlands developments.

According to Plantlife, the UK has lost 97% of its flower-rich meadows since the 1970s*, resulting in a drastic decrease in important food sources for pollinators.

By letting nature take its course, we hope to inspire others to adopt eco-friendly practices and promote biodiversity in their own neighbourhoods.

It couldn't be easier to take part in #NoMowMay. All you have to do is put your lawnmower away for a month and give plants a chance to grow.
