Volunteer boost for Acomb Wood

A team of volunteers from the Food Standards Agency have joined forces with the Friends of Acomb Wood to improve the local environment.

On 18th October a team of volunteers (pictured below) planted over 550 bulbs and built a dead hedge.

And one volunteer spent a few hours with a graffiti removal kit returning the Ashbourne Way noticeboard (pictured below) to a much improved state.

Acomb Wood gets grant from Yorwaste

Acomb WoodThe Friends of Acomb Wood, which which is located between Foxwood and Woodthorpe, are £8393 better off this morning thanks to a grant from local waste management company Yorkwaste.

Chaloners Road development also slated for approval

The Councils Planning Committee is set to approve improvements to the footpath which runs through Acomb Wood when it meets tomorrow (Thursday).

A planning application seeks permission to form a new pedestrian footpath through Acomb Wood to link Ashbourne Way and The Quaker Wood PH entrance and to extend the existing path from the Given Close entrance to Lomond Ginnel.

The footpath would be formed of a geotextile membrane which will be laid on top of the existing ground level. Up to 150mm of porous crushed recycled building material will be laid on top and held in place by timber edging. The edging will be held in place by metal or wooden stakes. The surrounding ground level would be re-profiled to the timber edging to prevent a trip hazard.

4.11 At present, whilst the path is established, it is very damp and muddy under foot. The area is extensively used as a cut through and by dog walkers. The raising of the path and the formation of a hard surface would enable the route to be more accessible and easier to negotiate when the weather is inclement.

Chaloners Road development

The demolition of the Council garages on Chaloners Road is also recommended for approval at the same meeting.

The proposal seeks to demolish the garages and erect a residential development containing 2 no. two bed houses and 6 no. 2 bed apartments.

The application is made by Housing Services and the apartments would all be for social rent (although Housing Services do not know if they will form part of the downsizing provision for the over 55s as yet). 6 no. car parking spaces would be provided.

Amenity space would be provided to the rear; including gardens for the houses and shared amenity space for the apartments.

The sub station would be relocated to the front (south west) corner of the site.
