Colin Dean, sales and marketing director at Orbit Homes, said: “We don’t only want to protect habitats, but also enhance and enrich green spaces to encourage the local wildlife to flourish."

The first phase of Micklewell Park is currently under way and is scheduled to be completed in March 2023, with 108 homes being delivered. The scheme will create more than 450 homes.
