Tree Felling and planting – village green woodland walk (south)

The Parish Council is completely satisfied with the professional advice and work of tree felling and new planting carried out in both Phases 1 and 2 of this woodland walk. The original tree bank was densely planted some 30 years ago without any follow-up maintenance and funding, hence the need to open up the canopy to allow for future growth using the now available funding. The maintenance programme will continue as an on-going process.

Volunteers

Residents carrying out works in areas not in their ownership, on land owned or maintained by the Parish Council, in such as litter picking or gardening assistance, must be authorised by the Parish Council and supervised at all times by a member of the Parish Council. This is an essential legal requirement in order to be covered by the Parish Council’s Public Liability insurance. Therefore no such works are authorised to take place without said permission, supervision and the Parish Council’s Public Liability Insurance cover. This is for the safety of everyone.
