|What is being done
Dunglass Road entrance into woodland
We have been investigating the flow rates and looking at various options. This has now been completed and forms a draft flooding assessment. Once the document has been approved by the group, this will go into the Development Plan which will be used in funding applications. In addition to this we are also actively looking at, and have already applied for, funding to carry out this work.
To be confirmed
Draft Woodland Management Plan
The funding has now been approved. The draft plan is in the process of being written. Once the draft plan is completed we will organise another consultation via this website to let the community review the draft plan and suggest changes or additions.
