Local Nature Reserves
The Wild:LIFE Project
North Warwickshire Borough Council currently has four Local Nature Reserves (LNRs).
This has been made possible through The Wild:LIFE project which is funded by Access to Nature a scheme run by Natural England and Funded by the Big Lottery (2010 - 2013).
Through the Wild:LIFE project wildlife habitats have been improved and the sites have been made more accessible and enjoyable to visit as well as creating opportunities for people to learn more about the nature around them and to get stuck in with some practical conservation activities.
What is a Local Nature Reserve?
A Local Nature Reserve is for both people and wildlife. LNRs offer people special opportunities to study or learn about nature or simply to enjoy it. It is a statutory designation, giving protection to the site and is a very clear signal to a local community of the local authority's commitment to nature conservation.
The Local Nature Reserve sites are:
- Abbey Green Park, Polesworth
- Cole End Park, Coleshill (area leading from the Children's Play area to the Park)
- Dafferns Wood, New Arley
- Kingsbury Meadow, Kingsbury (off Coventry Road)
