Following the positive results of a consultation in June 2022, plans for a path from Arden Hall up to Pleck Meadow are now being finalized.
The path, indicated by the yellow route on the map, will have two entrances. One at Arden Hall and the other on Pinewood Drive. The rest of the path will follow the purple route which includes a bridge over Pleck Brook and will end at Pleck Meadow.
The purple route, “Option 2,” was preferred over the orange route, “Option 1,” in the consultation so the orange route will not be constructed.
Civil works are planned to start on the 24th October 2022 and will last for a few months.
As a result, access to the site from Arden Hall will be more limited till the works are over. Signage will be in place to redirect visitors. Please keep your dog on a lead near the affected areas. The entrances at Avenue Parade and Peel Park Avenue will be unaffected.
The construction will cause little to no disturbance to local wildlife. The path will increase accessibility to Peel Park and the Coppice LNR and will also benefit future conservation activities such as scything courses, survey training and species transects.
