Following the successful installation of a replacement wooden fence atFields In Trustprotected Gore Cross Green Bradpole councillors have accepted a quote from local contractors John Bright’s Fencing to extend the fencing along two further sides of this green amenity space..
The fencing & posts along Hemletts Close & Townsend Way is becoming dilapidated and rusty.
We hope to have the work undertaken in July and in time for the school holidays.
This is part of the ongoing maintenance policy for our Parish owned Green Spaces.
The remaining fence borders the main Beaminster Road and is partly concealed by hedging. This fence will remain for the time being but will be reviewed from time to time.
BRADPOLE PARISH COUNCIL WORKING FOR THE BRADPOLE CIVIL PARISH COMMUNITY
We have reported on this website in previous years the steps that have been taken since 2014 to eradicate the outbreak of Japanese Knotweed at Townsend Way, Bradpole.
A visit to the site in the past few days has revealed that there is some new growth so our friends from the Bridport Lengthsman Team will recommence treatment this month.
A recent study on the control of Japanese Knotweed has been published by Swansea University in which they say that most information for people affected by the plant is largely based on anecdote. Knotweed can be controlled using glyphosate at the right time of year, though this can usually take three to five years.
