I’m delighted to announce a consultation we’re holding on a major planting scheme in Windmill and Wrose, under the banner, The Big Plant.
Stretching across from West Royd in Windmill right up to Carr Lane in Wrote the full extent of the scheme will involve planting up to around 8,000 trees in the ward, doubling the size of Catstones Wood above Wrose Brow and creating a new remembrance wood off Carr Lane to mark the centenary of the Great War.
We’re currently lettering all the households close by the planting areas to ensure their voices are heard and they have a chance to feedback their thoughts on the proposals. We’ve also been discussing it at community groups across the ward including the Neighbourhood Forum, Wrose Parish Council, Wrose Action Group and Bolton Villas Residents’ Association.
The letters to residents will include this high level overview sheet outlining the different elements of the planting project.
A cover letter will accompany this outlining potential changes closer to the residents home. Read it here: The Big Plant in Windhill and Wrose – Consultation Letter.
A presentation has been delivered to the Neighbourhood Forum and provides a bit more detail on each section of the planting project. This presentation is also available for you to view at Wrose Library. Read it here: The Big Plant in Windhill and Wrose Presentation.
We have issued a press release, which you can read here: Press Release – Big Plant – Consultation.
