According to this article a number of bee hotels have been built in parts of Gloucestershire. The hotels which are built from recycled materials and sustainable timber can house hundreds of bees at a time. They have been placed on land around a new supermarket in Dursley and the surrounding landscape has been planted to give a rich a supply of pollen. The hotels are aimed not an honeybees but more at solitary bees which it is hoped will travel widely and pollinate fruit and vegetable crops. Similar projects set up in other areas have seen dramatic increases in bee populations within a three year period.
