PEWTERSPEAR GREEN TRUST Ltd.
PATHS & COPPICING WORKS PLAN & SCHEDULE
Residents are advised that works to repair some footpaths and cut back areas of undergrowth (coppicing) on some boundaries across the parkland estate will commence shortly.
Coppicing is done for horticultural reasons to remove poor or undeveloped trees, reducing the density thereby enabling the remaining trees to develop to maturity. Shrubby species such as hazel & hawthorn are coppiced in order to regenerate and maintain a bushy understorey.
The works will take place during the period November 2019 to mid-March 2020 subject to prevailing weather conditions. The eventual aim is to remove undergrowth and create a clear 1 metre strip along all of the estate boundaries, but for this year the focus will be on those areas which have been identified as causing the most concern.
The works will be undertaken between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5p.m. on weekdays and residents in the areas scheduled may be affected by additional noise when coppicing works take place next to their property.
The Trust’s contractors will take reasonable efforts to avoid debris from the works falling into residents’ gardens but in some cases this may be unavoidable. Where it does occur residents are permitted to gather up the materials and deposit them back on the Trust’s property should they wish to do so.
If residents have any concerns or queries regarding these works they are asked not to contact the contractors undertaking the work but instead contact the Trust either by email or telephone using the details given below.
