Plymouth Natural Grid is a partnership project between Plymouth City Council, The National Trust and Real Ideas. From September 2021 to March 2023, they have been on a mission to create jobs for young people, engage local communities and enhance wildlife, along with improving access to nature spaces, climate proofing, and employment in the green sector.
The team is made up of Plymouth City Council officers, National Trust urban rangers and Real Ideas programme leaders.
