A few years ago Devizes Town Council took over the cutting of all grass areas around the town, including the ‘buffer zone’ alongside Quakers Walk.
As part of our plans for setting the grass-cutting regime, we have worked with local residents to understand their thoughts: some thought that this was a good opportunity to encourage a wider range of flora and fauna to the area, creating habitats for birds, butterflies, bees and endangered mammals such as hedgehogs.
In co-operation with an experienced local expert, we produced a Biodiversity Plan for Quakers Walk. The residents have now formed their own community biodiversity group that we continue to work closely with.

Feedback from the community is encouraged, if you would like to let us know your thoughts and ideas on how we can move forward with this project please email:
