Northwich BID developing Green Infrastructure in the Town
One of the Northwich Business Improvement District’s main objectives is to help deliver a greener, cleaner and more sustainable town for the people that visit, live and work here.
In 2016, the BID had a Green Infrastructure (GI) Plan created on their behalf by the Mersey Forest which identified locations around the town that would benefit from being greener and environmentally friendly.
Recently for example the Northwich BID funded the sourcing and installation of hanging and railing baskets and planters throughout the town which were installed by NTC. The floral displays have been widely met with approval and really bring a summery vibe to the streets.
Another eye-catching feature can be found in the heart of the £80 million Barons Quay development by way of a ‘living wall.’
The green wall is 170 square metres in total and is planted with Ivy, Ferns, Cotton Lavender and Heuchera which is also known as Alumroot. It provides a unique and nature orientated element to the development which is funded by one of the BID’s main partners, Cheshire West and Chester Council.
