To receive and consider the report of the
Maintenance & Environment Officer.
The Committee received and considered the report of the Maintenance & Environmental Services Officer, providing updates concerning the Lake & Country Park.
Members welcomed news that new signage, provided by the Lower Windrush Valley Project would be installed imminently and progress had been made on a vegetation survey of the Lake. The Committee agreed the recommendation from Facilitating Nature to use a grappling hook to help compile a species list of the vegetation.
There was further agreement on Rediscover Nature offering an additional activity to provide a temporary self-guided walk in the Country Park. Members were also made aware of a fairy door walk which had been created for children before Easter. Regrettably, the way these had been attached to trees could cause long-term harm; the creator had been asked to contact the Town Council in the hope officers could work with them in finding a more suitable way of running the activity.
1. That the report and verbal update by the Maintenance & Environmental Services Officer be noted; and,
2. That the aquatics survey offer from Facilitating Nature for the South section of the Lake be agreed; and,
3. That Rediscover Nature be allowed to use the Lake & Country Park for self-guided walks on a temporary basis.
