Commenting on current environmental projects - we have worked with the City Council to prioritise environmental improvements to paths and steps funded by Section 106 monies. Building partnerships to address wider concerns - for example on the Woodland review - surveying the condition of trees and making a long term plan to maintain and improve woodland areas - and the Orchard and Ponds - developing a joint project with Ouseburn Farm.
