Coopers Edge is at the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty, and situated
in the lea of the stunning rural backdrop of Nut Hill at the foot of the Cotswolds.
Large areas of hedgerows and mature trees in and around the homes development area
are being retained. There is also to be extensive provision of some 15.2 hectares
of public open space within the destination.
The closest possible attention is also being given to protect and conserve all aspects
of wildlife throughout the period of building of the new homes at Coopers Edge.
The Wootton Brook is being restored and culverts removed, creating a most active
and wildlife ‘corridor’ of value to many invertebrates, fish, bats, birds and more.
Special care provision is being made during development to support the likes of
barn owls, skylarks, badgers, bats and newts, whilst careful selection and planting
of flower shrub and tree species has been made to ensure that they all complement
the stunning overall wildlife habitat around Coopers Edge.
All aspects of the thriving wildlife within the Coopers Edge area will be intensely
monitored and managed throughout the period of the development.
