Trees for Congleton – Completed Sites

 

Burns Road 

Description

Small green space between Burns Road and Bromley Farm Woods (which is a Local Wildlife Site) with footpath leading under an arch into Bromley Woods. There is seating giving a view towards the wood, and Congleton Cloud may be glimpsed in the distance.

In 2022 a mixed native hedge was planted by Trees for Congleton volunteers, including local children, next to the railing separating the green space from the woodland.  The planting was funded by the Tree Council.

 

Planting benefit

  • Carbon storage to mitigate effects of climate change
  • Addition to green network, providing new habitat, flowers and berries for wildlife

Management

Once new planting is established, generally after one year, it is handed over to Congleton Town Council’s Streetscape team which already looks after green spaces in the town.  Cheshire East Council (Ansa) may also be involved, working alongside our Town Council team. It is appreciated that many residents help by picking litter when visiting the green space. 

It is intended that the hedge is maintained at around 1.2m high, with sides trimmed only lightly, or in alternate years, to allow flowers and berries to be produced.

Burns Road Final planting plan

Would you like to be a friend of Burns Road green space?

We would love local residents to become ‘friends’ of the trees and plants planted in the area. A ‘friend’ would keep an eye on the site and report any damage or problems, or indeed how the plants are flourishing!  As the site is next to Bromley Wood which is one of the Town Council’s 30 Biodiversity Sites.  Any information on wildlife or suggestions for enhancement would be welcomed. 

Please fill in the form with your contact details and a member of the team will be in touch.
