Sanders Park

During November, the island in Sanders Park will be undergoing some essential maintenance work to get it back to looking its best.

The works aim to reduce the amount of undergrowth as well as maintaining the trees to improve the habitat and biodiversity of the area as well as reducing the amount of debris which falls in the pond. The work will also ensure that all of the water safety signage can be seen clearly.

The trees will be trimmed back and then grown upwards to reduce the branch spread over the water. Some of the chippings and logs may be left on the island to encourage wildlife habitats.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Geoff Denaro, said: “No substantial works have been carried out in this area for some time so it will really encourage more biodiversity within the park, as well as making it a more pleasant area to be enjoyed by visitors. We thank park users for their patience during the works and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

A temporary bridge will be constructed and will be in place for the duration of the works to allow contractor access.

The Parks Team have scheduled the work to take place week commencing 14th November for approximately one week.
