Dewilding in Royal Park Gate

It took a few years for the green corridor from the river to be established (I have lived in Royal Park Gate since it was built in 1996) but it takes only a few moments to damage it.

For reasons that I simply do not understand, somebody has decided that the greenery by the junction of Northweald Lane and the foot/cycle path is not wanted and has removed it without consultation with neighbours or users (i walk that way several times every day).


The work is still in progress and I am hopeful that there will be some new planting but this will still leave the ground barren and hostile to wildlife.

I am more hopeful that this work is a once-off and that when the professional gardeners have gone nature will do her thing and reclaim the land, as it has where earlier attempts to dewild were made.
