Earley's Green Corridor - a summary

The Earley Environmental Group (EEG) has developed a Green Corridor Network for Earley. The network combines Earley’s green spaces and green links to create a joined-up network of linear corridors that can be protected and enhanced as a comprehensive body of ecological sites and natural habitats. Within each corridor, each green space and link has a role to play in providing natural habitats and routes for local wildlife, and valued leisure space for Earley’s residents. The green corridors will help to ensure that “green infrastructure” (green space and links) is preserved for the benefit of wildlife and biodiversity, is protected from the adverse impacts of development, and contributes to the reduction of air pollution and improvement of health.

We now have a summary document based on the EEG’s Green Corridor Network consultation document dated 12 December 2022.

The green corridor concept is based on the findings of the Lawton Report - Making Space for Nature: A Review of England’s Wildlife Sites and Ecological Network - published in 2010. The report looked at ways of better connecting England’s wildlife to strengthen ecological networks and encourage nature to thrive against the pressures of climate change and increased development.
