Brighton and Hove are leading the way to save solitary bees.

by Cat Woods

Any new building more than five metres high will be expeced to include bee bricks to aid biodiversity and protect solitary bees. 

Councillor Nemeth, a beekeeper, had his wish for bee bricks in new buildings granted last year.

The bee bricks have holes for solitary and hibernating bees and are now recommended on all major applications and preferred in houses and extensions.

Imagine the difference we can make if bee bricks were introduced to new development sites in St.Helens. We should definitely follow suit. If you’re someone of influence who can help make this become a reality for us, or know of someone who can help please email us at
