Cutting back the shrubbery

Some Friends of Preston park members have expressed concern at the radical cutting back of vegetation between the east end of Lime Tree Walk and the cycle track. We talked to park staff who say this level of cutting back is normal and planned. The vegetation will grow back very quickly. To minimise the effect on wildlife the cutting back is phased over several years.

Extraordinarily, in clearing that relatively small area, the parks staff took over four truck loads of rubbish!
