Leadgate Area Partnership applied to TESCO UK for a grant to improve Watling Wood with the following key objectives:
❒ Physical improvement of an open space
❒ Protecting or improving biodiversity
❒ Improving Well-being
The Project Aims to fulfil its objective by:
• Installing a pond dipping platform
• A boardwalk over particularly wet sections of footpath
• Provide seating
• Add native marginal plants to the pond to enhance the habitat diversity
• To create a small damp meadow area
The Partnership, along with the other key Stakeholders, TESCO (Finance): Groundworks (Installations): and Durham County Council (Landowners): are co-ordinating this project which it is hoped will start in the Spring of 2017.
Update from Andy Plant on the Watling Wood Project
In the next couple of weeks we hope to see the development of Watling Woods with a couple of seats, a pond dipping platform, and an extension of the boardwalk thanks to Leadgate Partnership and Tesco's Bags of Help
Work is progressing well on the Watling wood project.
