New Kissing Gates Being Installed to Help Deter Motorcycle Access

During week commencing 8th April, Homes England will be carrying out the installation of three kissing gates, a field gate and a new post and rail fence along their boundary on Bonville Road. The works will help deter motorcycles accessing the field in the north east of Brislington Meadows.

The works will involve the clearance of localised scrub to assist removal of the existing post and wire fence, and replace it with a new, more robust post and rail fence. The area fenced off due to the location of the Japanese knotweed will remain unaltered.

An Ecological Clerk of Works(EcoW) will be present during the start of the works to survey for the presence of breeding birds, slow worms and small mammals and will direct the works accordingly. Should breeding birds and other ecological interest have potential to be affected, the works will be re-designed (or, if necessary, re-scheduled) to avoid potential disturbance of nesting birds.

The ECoW will also carry out prestart bird checks on 3rd April , to allow the planning of the works in advance of commencement.

At the same time, at the request from residents, scrub overhanging the rear access road at Allison Road, will be cut back to the kerb line to allow vehicular access. These works will also be supervised by an ECoW to avoid potential disturbance of wildlife.
