The Planting of a Community Woodland is to be provided as part of a future development of the Brimsmore Key Site.
The Woodland Area will be planted on the outer side of the Link Road to the west of the future Brimsmore development.
The area will provide an attractive amenity area for Brimsmore residents as well as providing a diverse habitat for wildlife.
It is proposed that the Community Woodland be planted in three phases:
Section A after 250 houses are built
Section B after 690 houses are built
Section C after 750 houses are built on completion of 90% of the scheme.
The delivery of the Community Woodland is tied to the planning consent granted for the development of Brimsmore. It has been suggested that children from the proposed new primary school could each plant a sapling in the Woodland Area to help give the Brimsmore community 'ownership' of the woodland.
The woodland has the potential to be a very special space:
