A Living Green Wall would benefit the town’s community through Well-being,  Air Quality, and Biodiversity Enhancement.


·         The Living Green Wall is a community-led project to build a vertical garden on the wall in Bridge Yard opposite the Coop

·         This wall is currently blank and can be found on Google as “the ugliest wall in Wiltshire”. In recent months the dustbins have been removed from here as a step to improvement.

·         Stephanie Edwards has engaged local residents, businesses, and groups, including Town Councillors to support the project.

·         The owners of the wall are engaged and in agreement

·        The Town Council`s  Environment & Planning  Committee approved  support with the  planning application

·         ANS Global has been selected to provide the wall as they were most competitive and offered the most comprehensive design, plant choice and ongoing maintenance options. . ANS Global has a track record of creative and beautiful green wall installations around the World and in some cities in the UK. We will be the first small-town community project.

 .         We have had presentations and seen real examples of their work. https://www.ansgroupglobal.com/

·         Significant funding has already been pledged from town groups and individuals. Total cost estimate  £45k

·         Most of the wall will be covered with mixed plants

ALL DONATIONS WILL GO DIRECT TO THE TOWN COUNCIL BANK ACCOUNT 

Benefits for having a Living Green Wall in the heart of Bradford on Avon

·         Putting a green heart into our town, showing commitment to Climate & Ecology Emergency declarations

·         Plants will be selected for maximum vehicle gases absorption and particulate trapping as some measure towards better air quality

·         Plants and greenery are known to be good for well-being and the changing beauty through the seasons will improve the feel-good ambiance of Lambs Yard

·         This wall could become the most beautiful wall in Wiltshire and attract locals, and visitors from afar and local businesses will benefit.

·         The design includes space for town map and updateable business listings

·         The wall will include all types of colourful plants that will have seasonal changes and also include  some LED lights

·         The wall is designed to include birdhouses and bug hotels to emphasise our biodiversity message and will engage with younger residents

·         The design will incorporate limited seating for the benefit of shoppers

PLEASE HELP US raise the additional  funds required  for our Living Wall , we will all benefit
