NOTICE TO RESIDENTS RE: POND DESILTING WORK
Facebook & Website
The seven ponds located on the Trust’s estate form important amenity and wildlife features. These have accumulated silt and rotting vegetation which requires removal periodically to improve public safety, wildlife value and reduce flooding risk.
This work will initially involve the removal of some trees and shrubs to allow more light to reach the surface, and also reduce the future volume of leaf litter. This will be followed by the removal of silt and debris using large excavators and there is likely to be some noise and inconvenience to residents and the public for at least a week.
The first pond to benefit from this desilting work is Street Pond, which is located to the rear of the Sports Pavilion and the work will commence on Thursday 11th November when safety fencing will be installed around the perimeter of the site. The work will continue into the following week.
The excavated silt and debris will be spread on adjacent areas and levelled which will result in a noticeable smell for a while. Once dry, the areas will be reinstated to grassland.
PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons, the footpath linking the pavilion car park to the Roman Road path may be closed whilst the desilting work is taking place.
There will mean there may be no direct access to Roman Road at the rear of the Pavilion and pedestrians are advised to use an alternative route via Beamish Close to the Roman Road footpath or the path from London Road to St Matthews Church.
Parents are requested to make their children aware that Street Pond will not be accessible during these works and until the removed silt has fully dried out.
