Tidy up begins of Plock Court trees

The clean up around the Queen’s Jubilee trees in Plock Court has finally begun after much pressure from Liberal Democrat councillors.
After repeatedly asking the city council to tidy up the unsightly plastic sleeves from the trees the work is getting underway.
Plock Court has also had issues with people using metal detectors without permission of the county council and leaving holes in the ground causing a danger to the public and pets.
Councillor Linda Castle said: “I regularly walk my dog in Plock Court and I couldn’t believe the mess around the new trees and holes everywhere left by people using metal detectors.
“I am pleased many of the holes have been filled in by Ubico. If you spot any new holes, then please let us know so we can take action and try and stop it happening again.”
Meanwhile, the wetland area within Plock Court, which is a popular haven for wildlife, is being extended.
The wetland area also acts as a flood prevention scheme for the surrounding area and has proven hugely beneficial to the site, attracting many insects, damselflies, dragonflies, birds and animals.
Work is on the wetland area is expected to be finished by next summer.
