Scooping the prize for Business was the Nauls Mill linear park project led by Idverde and Complex Development Projects.

The winning project for the business category was described by the judges as an excellent example of connecting community with nature.

The Linear Park project was created to connect communities in the north of Coventry with the city centre, greening a neglected urban environment. The project aimed to create new and sustainable habitats for wildlife, offer safe playing areas for local families and bring nature right into the city centre.

In addition to planting almost 2,000 mature trees and saplings, giving instant additional nesting and food for birds and other wildlife, they created a range of habitat features including bird and bat boxes, stag beetle loggeries and hedgehog houses.

They also created a new wetland area which will support a wide variety of species, supported by planting more than 23,000 shrubs and creating a native wildflower meadow.
