Conditions in The Warren and South Gardens

The ground to the eastern side of South Gardens and the footpaths leading up into the Warren are currently deeply rutted and slippery as a result of the tree works and the very wet weather conditions.

Work to re-profile the footpaths will be starting on Monday and this will improve access to the areas concerned.

Tree works in the Warren and South Gardens 

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during the recent period of disruption.  

The work in the Warren and South Gardens is coming to an end, the footpaths are expected to be re-opened by 16th November.  The ash trees within the area have been removed along with a small number of other trees for thinning and management purposes.  

Inevitably with such intensive works the area looks substantially different and you will notice there are some large open spaces where trees once stood and some of the ground has been disturbed by the machinery carrying out the works. All of these things will settle and  time along with careful management will allow the area to thrive once again with more varied flora and fauna. 

The next step is to wait and see how the woodland will start to naturally replenish itself, and then starting in the Spring the Council, hopefully with a band of volunteers, will start to assess and protect the regrowth in the area and then form a plan for replanting.  

The Woodland Management Plan providing more information about this can be viewed by clicking on "Documents" and then "Reports" in the right hand column of this website.

As mentioned above, the Council will be hoping to arrange some volunteer groups to work within the area, if you are interested in taking part or just wish to be kept up to date please contact Trish Walker, email: clerk@harting-pc.gov.uk
