Spotlight on Spinney Pocket Park

The management of Spinney Pocket Park has been passed to the Parish Council’s Biodiversity Group and they are working through a management plan to improve the biodiversity of the Spinney Pocket Park.

Spinney Pocket Park – excerpts from the Draft Outline Management Plan
The area is a surviving part of the southeast corner of Carlton Park. 19th Century maps show it planted with both deciduous and coniferous trees. Some of these remain as mature oaks in the spinney and a large oak and pine in the school grounds.

To increase biodiversity and nesting opportunities for birds it is recommend that selective removal of some of the more crowded trees be undertaken. This would allow more light to reach the ground and retained trees and shrubs the opportunity to reach their full potential. Felled timber could be used to create log and brash habitat piles to encourage diversity.

It is also recommended more native shrubs such as holly, hazel, spindle etc. are planted. This would give structure to the woodland which could then be managed as a traditional ‘coppice with standards’. Once established, consideration could be given to introducing appropriate native ground flora such as bluebells, etc. It is also recommended the hedge adjacent to the main road should be retained to suppress traffic noise and fumes.
