Nature Walk

Opportunities should be encouraged to support both the local community and environment.

Protecting the environment is an important aspect of considerate construction, particularly in regards to preserving the local landscape for surrounding communities.

It should therefore make sense to focus efforts in conjunction with the environment and community.

One site achieved this by implementing a nature walk initiative:

  • The substation site was located at Loch Buidhe within an area of high ecological value;
  • The site put significant measures in place throughout the project to protect the existing ecology;
  • As part of a community initiative they asked the on-site ecologist to carry out a series of guided nature walks in the vicinity of the site;
  • The first one was arranged in May and the site have advertised to hold one every month to the end of the summer;
  • There was a good turnout for the first walk, but they expect more people as word spreads and the better weather arrives;
  • The contractor has also agreed to make a donation to the Woodland Trust for everyone who comes along to the walk.
