Urban Buzz Bristol

Urban Buzz Bristol is a project designed to create habitat for our much loved pollinators including bees and butterflies. The project will be working across the city with various groups to explore different ways in which sites such as parks, road verges, school grounds and other publicly accessible land can be improved.

Through the Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy and the Get Bristol Buzzing campaign the city has already come a long way on its journey to improve the local open spaces and parks for pollinating insects and enjoyment of the public.

The Urban Buzz project has continued to build on this work in partnership with Bristol City Council, South Gloucestershire Council, University of Bristol, University West of England, Bristol Zoo and Bristol Water as well as schools, hospitals, churches, businesses and local community groups to create of lots more pollinator habitat, colour and life in key areas across the city.

70 buzzing hotspots have been created including wildflower meadows, woodland plants, spring bulbs, tree planting, bee banks and pollinator gardens to provide more feeding opportunities or our bees.
