Bury's third local nature reserve to be declared is the Hollins Vale local nature reserve, officiated on 24th July 2003.

The declaration of the site as a local nature reserve was made possible by a joint management agreement between Bury Council and Viridor Waste Management Limited who own the vale area. This agreement allows the whole area to be managed to the benefit of wildlife and as an area of urban green space for use by the local community.

The Hollins Vale site has a well established friends group. The Hollins Conservation Group have been campaigning to promote the site as a local nature reserve for its wildlife, education and recreational value.

The development of the Hollins Vale site has been largely volunteer led, with support from officers of Bury Council. The group hold regular meetings and welcome anyone from the local area to attend. The meetings are used to help steer the development of the local nature reserve project and plan practical tasks and events.
