Branston Leas

Boosting biodiversity in Branston Leas

In the Staffordshire village of Branston, we are halfway through a decade-long partnership with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust to create a living landscape along a major stretch of the River Trent.

Biodiversity & Sustainable Environments

A living landscape

Sitting alongside our Branston Leas residential development and St. Modwen Park Burton – one of our flagship industrial and logistics schemes – this 138-acre site has seen the creation of new green spaces for residents and wildlife to enjoy.

A home for nature

Creating new habitats for wildlife

To date, over 19,000 trees and 12,000 bluebells have been planted and there has been a rise in the numbers of skylark and snipe nesting along the riverbank. The space has also acted as an outdoor classroom for over 850 local schoolchildren learning about wildlife and biodiversity.
