Bury Parish Council last year passed a resolution to adopt a plan proposed by SDNPA and the Wild Trout Trust to remove the weirs impounding the pond and allow the pond area to revert to a natural stream environment thereby enhancing the site’s biodiversity and ecological connectivity, as well as removing the need for periodic desilting of the pond and repairs to the weirs.
The attached documents are those submitted in support of our application for planning permission for this engineering work.
A comprehensive description of the background, proposed works and benefits can be found in the Design and Access Statement.
A planning application has now been submitted to SDNPA which you can access on their website by searching the reference SDNP/22/02265/FUL
