In Autumn 2020, Parks and Countryside’s Woodland Creation Team produced proposals to plant two large areas of whips on the main part of Woodhouse Moor. Following consultation with local community groups, these plans were abandoned. In their place, the Climate Change Working Group has devised this undated plan to plant 832 whips in the Cliff Terrace area of the Moor. At a Zoom meeting of the Little Woodhouse Community Association in July 2021, Parks and Countryside assured those present that the Cliff Terrace proposals would be consulted on. This has not happened.
These are the Climate Change Working Group’s proposals for the Cliff Terrace area of the Moor:
- Overall Coverage for Alternative Management = 1,872 m 2 (Approx.)
- Overall Amount of Proposed Whips with 1.5m Spacing = 832 (Approx.)
- Minimum distance from footpaths and roads: 7m
- Minimum distance from properties: 15m
