A new homes development in Bicester called Hemins Place from David Wilson Homes is contributing to the local environment by making it a great place for insects, animals and plants as well as people.

The leading housebuilder has committed to implementing features on its sites that both the local wildlife and residents can take advantage of. Hemins Place has been designed to offer 0.54 acres of public open spaces and two play areas.

Families can take full advantage of the open space as well as the 89 trees due to be planted at the development, using them to connect with the natural world around them.
