We plan to restore a pond near the car park at Byron’s Pool local nature reserve this winter.
The pond, shown in purple on the consultation leaflet [PDF, 337KB], appears on historic maps but has been largely lost to encroaching scrub.
We propose to clear this scrub, using removed stumps and timber to create a hibernaculum for amphibians and invertebrates. The plan is for vegetation from the original seed bank and adjacent ponds to colonise the pond over time.
We want to hear what you think about this proposal – visit our online survey to read more about it and have your say.
If you have any questions about it, contact our Streets and Open Spaces team at email@example.com or 01223 458532.
We’ll review all of your comments before deciding whether to implement or revise the proposal.
