|Hedge cutting along Wadloes Footpath planned for 17th December 26 November, 2015|
Gonville & Caius College have informed us that hedge cutting works along Wadloes Footpath have been provisionally booked for 17th December. Signs will be put up a few weeks in advance to ensure that cars aren’t parked there on the day at the Fen Ditton end.
Works will include the cutting back of hedges along the footpath. The crowns of any overhanging trees will also be lifted to around 2.5 metres above ground level along the route of the path.
In the area where the cars are parked by the War Memorial, contractors have been instructed that the brambles be cut right back. Clearly, they ask that cars do not park in the area whilst works are being carried out. The College will erect notices so that car owners have plenty of warning.
It is worth noting that the hedges along the footpath may not look that neat immediately after the works are completed, but by the middle of next summer it will not be obvious that the works ever took place. As you will appreciate, these works are necessary to ensure the pathway remains clear throughout the year, and they will be carried out when the hedges are dormant, outside of the bird nesting season.[+ go back...]
