Parish Council’s Increasing Biodiversity Project - St Mary's Road
Posted 67 weeks ago (13/10) by Theresa Goss
About a year ago, the Parish Council agreed to follow up the Chairman’s initiative by creating increased biodiversity areas around the village and encouraging residents to become involved.
Following a report on this project in the Contact, a number of residents contacted the Clerk and Chairman to express support and interest in being involved.
As a result areas around the village have been left unmown during this summer to encourage grass and wild flowers to grow. These include Lake Walk Green, Tanners Lane areas of grass/verge and St Mary’s Rd entrance.
When the grass was mown in September at St Mary’s Road, residents removed the risings and have planted seeds from wildflowers.
Bollards have been agreed with OCC for St Mary’s Rd to discourage vehicles from parking on the area of grass. The residents have also begun to develop log piles in this area.
The Parish Council would like to thank all residents for their continued support with these initiatives.
