Have your say on Wyre Council’s proposal to create three new urban woodlands in Wyre

Tree planting Published Monday, 09 November 2020

Wyre Council has committed to planting 25,000 trees as part of their pledge to tackle climate change.

To achieve this the council is working with the Woodland Trust through its ‘MOREwood’ and ‘MOREhedges’ schemes to create 10 hectares of new native woodland and hedgerows across its open spaces by 2025.

This climate focused tree planting will play a vital role in mitigating climate change, as well as protecting and enhancing threatened biodiversity.

We must reduce our carbon footprint and the planting and establishment of healthy trees to sequester carbon are a vital part of this. Trees offer huge benefits for mankind, wildlife and the environment from filtering out air pollution, improving our wellbeing, providing habitat and foraging opportunities for birds, bats and other wildlife, to helping mitigate against flooding.

Wyre Council will be kick starting this initiative during National Tree Week (28 November to 6 December) and will be tree planting through the remainder of tree planting season 2020/21.

The council has identified three areas suitable for this initiative, but wants to hear from residents their views on the proposals.

The three sites identified are:

  1. Cottam Hall playing fields, Poulton-le-Fylde
  2. Stalmine play fields  
  3. Great Eccleston playing fields

Visit www.wyre.gov.uk/woodlandcreation to have your say. The consultation is open until 5pm on 11 December 2020.
