Issues that could be dealt with by the scheme include:

  • Enhancing neglected areas.
  • Redesign of old planted areas to increase natural surveillance.
  • Improving the layout of footpaths and removing inappropriate steps.
  • Reducing nuisance issues such as ball games.
  • Upgrading of open space.
  • Ornamental tree, hedge or bulb planting where appropriate.

Other similar types of scheme that are deemed a priority by the residents can also be considered. Please note ERS schemes would not generally include:

  • Resident only parking.
  • Tree removal.
  • Replacement of play equipment.
  • Work on land not owned by the council

The consultation phase has now ended. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute their ideas to this consultation.

The first phase of the work to undertake spring bulb planting has been carried out in both Buckskin and South Ham areas to enhance the landscape and increase biodiversity. The remaining works to improve the landscape will start during the spring.
