Final Feedback Report
Walthamstow Marshes Site management Workshop
14th December 2013
Leyton Marsh amenity grassland
- We will be adopting the management principles outlined in the London Wildlife Trust biological report. As part of the planned works the reinstated grassland area will be scarified and over seeded to encourage a more diverse sward. Alternative options, including stripping away areas of turf to seed naturally, will be considered depending on the success of the scarifying and seeding.
The amenity grassland is identified under the Park Development Framework as an events space and it is felt that allowing a longer sward is in conflict with this aim. A core area will therefore be retained as amenity grassland. However, we have identified opportunities to reduce the overall amenity area by leaving some areas uncut and in the long term managing them as part of the meadow grassland.
- Both LVRPA and LB Waltham Forest are satisfied that STRI adequately discharged the works that they were contracted to deliver.
Provision of weekly updates
- We do not have the resources to deliver this level of communication however we will give regular updates on future works, events and opportunities to get involved in the proposed newsletter and via email as and when appropriate.
