Matson and Robinswood

Retrofit SUDS and habitat improvements

Located within the Matson and Robinswood Wards

Three key locations have been identified in this area for habitat and bio-diversity improvements.

At Banebury Road public open space (POS) it's intended to retro-fit a Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) through the park to create wetland features whilst improving habitat, water quality and surface water management.  For the wider area to introduce a wildflower meadow with elements of native tree planting to compliment the area.

The proposals for Matson Park include the creation of a number of wetland scrapes and introduce a wildflower meadow with associated native tree planting; the existing sports facilities will remain.

Haycroft Drive POS features the Matson Brook.  It's intended to replace the amenity grass in part with wildflower meadow with paths cut through the meadows to add interest and encourage well-being.
