If you see activity on the Meadows…
Wirksworth Archaeological Society will be undertaking an exploratory survey, they will be investigating a structure revealed on LIDAR (scan attached here).
The Town Council has engaged an Arboriculturist who has undertaken a safety survey of the trees currently on the Meadows.
Two trees have been identified that require remedial works. The council will be engaging a local tree surgeon to make both trees safe. If possible, the main trunks will be left in place to retain wildlife habitat, and habitat piles will be created adjacent to each tree.
A locked noticeboard has been erected on the Meadows - at the fork of the two footpaths at the top (NE) end of the space. This will be used to provide updates on all matters Meadows related including the consultation process.
The council has engaged a surveyor to prepare a topographical survey of the space to aid in the consultation process.
