The five aside fencing in Palmer Park is to be replaced. We are going to lose a few self seeded trees as part of this. I have asked if we can get some new ones planted to compensate. More information below:
I am pleased to inform you that the fencing around the 5 aside courts at Palmer Park is going to be replaced during the school summer holidays. In order to carry out this work, it is necessary to remove some of the branches from the trees surrounding the courts. In addition, two small elders and an elm tree are being removed. The elders are self sown and if left, will grow in and through the fencing. The elm tree is also self seeded and very small and if not attended will impact on the courts in the future.
We will, as a matter of course, ensure that before any work is carried out to the trees, there are no nesting birds present.
The work to the trees will be starting on Wednesday 30th July and will take 2-3 days.
Work to replace the fencing will start mid August (date still to be confirmed), and will be completed before the end of August.”
