An overview of all the Council's duties and projects in helping wildlife throughout the Borough.
There are many sites and areas in Broxtowe which are valuable for wildlife. The Council has formally designated 15 Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) and has a policy to declare more sites whenever possible. Find out more about our LNRs and where they are located.
Situated 7km south west of Nottingham's city centre, Attenborough Nature Reserve was once an area of wet grassland alongside the River Trent. As a result of decades of gravel extraction and careful restoration, the area has become a haven for wildlife. The council, the Wildlife Trust and the site owners CEMEX work together to manage the Nature Reserve and deliver improvements.
Green Infrastructure in Broxtowe is defined as "a network of living multi-functional natural and semi natural features, green spaces, rivers, canals and lakes that link and connect villages, towns and cities."
