Mark welcomed investment from the Woodland Trust of quarter of a million pounds to create new community woodland.
News came last week that the Woodland Trust’s Emergency Tree Fund has awarded Bolsover District Council £269,000 to plant 27,000 trees across the district. This funding will create new woodland areas and green spaces to combat climate change and create spaces for residents to enjoy.
This investment will help Bolsover to create more picturesque rural landscapes that will improve the quality of life for residents and provide another attraction for Bolsover’s burgeoning tourism industry. By creating new woodlands and green spaces Bolsover also strengthens its credentials as a leading region in the Government’s strategy for a green industrial revolution.
“Our outdoor spaces are so important and never has this become more evident than during the pandemic over the last 12 months. I’m incredibly pleased that Bolsover District Council has been chosen for this important investment.”
