Ponds at Turnpike Field

Work commences tomorrow- Monday 27th January.

Please don't be alarmed when you see a digger on site! Signs are being displayed at each entrance point of the field warning that the work is in progress. Please be careful, particularly when walking dogs.

As reported the other day, these ponds will provide a sanctuary for great crested newts and encourage flora and fauna in the area and will be managed for 25 years by a habitat specialist who will visit regularly. They are another initiative implemented to encourage wildlife to thrive in the area. Others that have already taken place are the bird and bat boxes recently installed on trees in the field and tree surgeons have tended to the trees, ensuring they are in optimum health and made safe for residents using the field.

An annual maintenance and enhancement plan has also been prepared setting out a calendar of work so we can proactively manage the field going forward.
