Skate Park Safety in Sight!

The hedge around the skatepark has not been cut for many years and had grown very high and thick. The Town Council agreed to lower and cut back the hedges and to cut a second entrance to make it safer and more accessible. The aim is to strike a balance between making the skatepark more visible for safety reasons, whilst leaving sufficient trees and hedges in place to soften the visual impact of the park.

No mature trees have been cut. The hazel coppice has been cut back hard, and while this looks stark at present, it will regrow quickly.

The cuttings will be chipped as soon as the ground is dry enough for the machinery to get to the site.
