Unfortunately, we have had to have our new path temporarily closed.
The issue is this – the developers, by law, have to protect any newts that might reside on the greenway. This means that they have to put up a newt fence to keep them off the housing development. Because I have never seen a newt on the greenway, I kinda smashed through the newt fence to create our exit. I didn’t even consider the consequences. However, this puts the developers in an impossible situation because it means they are breaking the law.
Hence the fence.
There are solutions and hopefully, we can work something out like this…
Nothing was done with intentional damage or malice, and I am sorry for all the upset that I have caused for loads of people!!
So, Marcus, Aaron, Reece, and myself rocked up to try and get the project moving the right way again.
The steps look fantastic and all of this workday was about up on the top.
At the top of the steps, we want to position a picnic bench and start a wildflower mini-meadow.
As you can see from the slideshow, the steps start where the greenway breaks out of a wooded path and turns to scrubby bramble. We want to scallop most of this scrub back and seed with Corn Cockle, Corn Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn Marigold and Field Poppy.
This will create an amazing blast of colour and bring in so much wildlife.
Onwards and upwards!!
