Biodiversity is everywhere. It’s where we live and work. It’s the bugs and insects in your back garden, our great parks and the trees that breathe in air pollution. These are often living spaces we take for granted but make all the difference to our way of life.
Your Homes Newcastle is committed to the City’s priority to protect and preserve biodiversity, including trees, wildlife and green environment.
YHN supports Newcastle City Council’s strategies and policies that are in place, including:
- Tree Preservation Orders and trees in a Conservation Area

- High Hedges
- Nuisance and dangerous trees or hedges
- Tree strategy
