Arboriculturalist surveys identified that Ash dieback is advancing through large volumes of Ash trees within falling distance of the licensed path presenting a safety risk to public. The closure is necessary to ensure public safety and to remove tree limbs and trees that have suffered Ash dieback.
Habitat surveys are on-going to ensure regulations compliance, inform tree felling methodology and mitigation measures to minimise habitat loss.
We are working hard to keep the closure to a minimum.
