Notification of Woodland Work July 2020

Please be advised that the annual tranche of woodland work will take place this week through to next week, possibly longer subject to weather conditions.

Woodsmiths will be in various areas of the whole woodland attending to trees identified in our annual survey as requiring attention and the scope of work has been agreed with our managing agent, Michael Greet of Savills.

For safety reason, members are requested to keep out of the woods during the next two weeks.

Neighbourhood Watch Update – Spring 2018

Fly Tipping

There have been three incidents of fly tipping in the woods on Beach Road in the last month.

As this is private land the Council is unable to act and therefore it is the responsibility of the landowners to ensure the removal of the same at their own expense.

If you discover fly tipping

DO NOT – Touch the waste

DO – Report to myself or one of the Directors

If you see someone fly-tipping


But make note of the following:

  • How many people are involved
  • What they look like
  • What has been tipped – how much and what it looks like
  • Details of any vehicles involved including make colour and registration

Crime in the area for the last three months

  • Thankfully none in Wheal Regent Park to my knowledge
  • The police figures are only available for January 2018
  • There was a burglary in Haddon Way – Investigation completion; no suspect identified
  • Theft of Gas Bottles from Edie’s Kitchen – Investigation ongoing

Parking at the entrance to Wheal Regent Park

Following discussions regarding parking at the entrance of our road at the last AGM, the Board has been working with our Parish Council and Ward Councillor Tom French.

A pilot scheme to alleviate the situation on several residential roads including Wheal Regent Park has begun with the distribution of parking cones.

We have received twelve cones and it has been agreed with our local PCSO Julie Carpenter that these will be placed on the road between 10am and 5pm each day during August and the results monitored.

I am very grateful to Malcolm Carter who has volunteered to take charge of the cones and their placement.

We hope that this measure will be successful. If members have any comments, please contact me.

Christmas 2016 – Woodlands Update

All members should have a paper copy of the Christmas newsletter through their doors now.
There has been a revision to the bank details from Savills which has been included in the electronic version (pdf). To download a copy, click here.

Authority for the Woodland Management Plan (WMP)

In 2012 the wood was the subject of a Statutory Plant Health Notice requiring the company to remove all Rhododendron plants within the wood, which took place during 2012/3, clearing significant areas of undergrowth. Subsequent to this, in a bid to improve the wood which had not been actively managed for many decades and which was in poor condition, we started the process of producing a Woodland Management Plan under the guidance of the Forestry Commission, resulting in the plan being approved in 2015. As part of this process, the necessary felling licences were issued by the Forestry Commission.

The Forestry Commission advised us that the approved WMP and felling licences that result from it supersede any Tree Preservation Order (TPO) restriction and allow the company to carry out works to trees as approved under the licence without submitting individual applications to lift the TPO – this is the current position as we understand it. The work being carried out under the WMP involves clearing the non-native trees/invasive plants, damaged or malformed trees, scrub, debris and self-seeded plants and replanting the bare ground with an lowland oak woodland species list as approved by the Forestry Commission. The result will be a vastly improved woodland.

The first phase of the works took place in 2015, the 2016 works taking place this week. We have budgeted for 1-2 weeks work per year. The Council’s Environmental Health Team have been made aware of the works as they may involve burning of brash and production of a small amount of smoke – they have confirmed that they have no concerns. In addition, the local fire brigade have been made aware of the works in case their services are required.

In additional to these works, the company carries out tree safety surveys due to the proximity of dwellings, railway line and public highways, carrying out recommended works on dead, dying and diseased trees as directed by an arboriculture surveyor to reduce the risk the members of the public and neighbours.
