Parish Council's Increasing Biodiversity Project - Amenity Areas on the Aynho Road, Longwall Close and Sydenham Close

Posted 2 weeks ago (13/10) by Theresa Goss

These will be managed for meadow plants through agreement with Cherwell District Council (CDC) which has responsibility for these amenity areas. CDC has begun the project in Long Wall Close amenity area, leaving some areas as meadow grass and mowing only a pathway through. The area produced a good show of wild flowers during the summer. 
 
In the Sydenham Close amenity area CDC has begun the clearance of sycamores and coppicing of hazel as the first part of this project. More work will take place this autumn.
 
Residents in Sydenham Close have shown keen interest in volunteering to help manage that area and a number of meetings have been held with CDC to discuss creating a residents’ volunteer group.

As part of the Parish Council's biodiversity project, the PC has also worked with the Christopher Rawlins School to develop a ‘Forest School’ area on the PC land, next to Vera Wood Close. The PC has received 15 small fruiting trees from the Woodland Trust for planting in the Forest School area and possibly at the Rise. These have been planted in a ‘nursery bed’ until the autumn when they will be planted as part of the children’s own scheme. The Adderbury WI have also expressed a wish to be involved in the tree planting.
 
The Parish Council would like to thank all residents for their continued support with these initiatives.
