Biodiversity at the EcoPark
A detailed plan for managing construction will be followed by all site workers to minimise impacts on all surrounding wildlife, including bats.
Sensitive lighting will be installed along Lee Park Way to maintain a dark corridor along the River Lee Navigation and minimise disturbance to bats. The lighting columns will have a low lux lighting level, as well as motion sensors, so that the lights only turn on when Lee Park Way is in use by vehicles or pedestrians / cyclists.
The North London Heat and Power Project will connect landscapes and help to integrate the project with Lee Valley Regional Park.
The design elements include green and brown planted roofs on the new Energy Recovery Facility, native tree and shrub planting, grassland and meadow planting in the EcoPark, as well as native marginal planting along Enfield Ditch. Our approach will help create a high-quality landscaping scheme that maximises ecological enhancement and sustainable water management.
The design will also enhance and revitalise the experience of walking along the tow path of the River Lee Navigation. The design also considers the industrial Eley Estate to the west.
