Nature in focus
Our soft estate
Did you know that we're one of the country's largest landowners?
The land we manage includes 30,000 hectares of green land, our 'soft estate'.
We're commited to using this land to:
- reconnect habitats
- reverse the decline in biodiversity
- help wildlife thrive
- increase environmental resilience to a changing climate
Planning for the future
Over the next three decades, we plan to deliver a sustainable road network that protects and enhances the environment:
- mitigating the impact of England’s busiest roads
- ensure that our land can be a force for good for generations to come
Our recently published Environmental Sustainability Strategy sets out our vision of a connected country and a thriving environment.
