Habitat improvements

Located within the Matson and Robinswood, Hucclecote and Elmbridge Wards

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

At King George V Playing Fields we are proposing to plant a number of native tree in addition to creating several swales on the edge of the park to increase bio-diversity and reduce flood risk.  The spoil removed for the swales will be used to create butterfly banks which will provide habitat for other pollinators.

The proposals for Armscroft Park, through which the Wotton Brook flows, include extending the existing buffer along the watercourse by creating a two-stage channel and replacing areas of amenity grass with wildflower meadow to provide a more diverse habitat.

Estcourt Road Gardens features the Wotton Brook.  We intend to review the existing gardens and introduce plants that are considered to be beneficial to pollinators and invertebrates.   This will enhance the blue-green corridor with the University of Gloucestershire works, downstream as part of the overall Urban Greening project.
