Land Between Woodchurch Road & Appledore Road: Preparation for Ecology Works starts on Monday, 8th April 2024

Vistry Group



We are in receipt of a Natural England license for trapping as part of upcoming ecological works.

This will include:

•          Set up of receptor areas for newts and reptiles (2x separate areas to be fenced off and habitat enhancements made (overseeding and hibernacula / log piles created).

•          Set up of trapping areas for the pitches, pavilion, access road and basin west of the entrance.

These set-up works are estimated to take about 4 weeks. Initially, the receptor areas will be set up and the fencing pegged out, which is likely to take a week or two, and then the fencing will be installed in earnest.

The attached plan from our Ecologist shows the areas that will be fenced. Areas A and E are the receptor areas within which the captured animals will be placed whilst the trapping takes place.
