Volunteers help improve Forder Valley woodland

Volunteers and staff from Poole Farm have been helping to improve areas of woodland within the Forder Valley Local Nature Reserve, as part of the project to build the new Forder Valley Link Road.

Some of the woodland within the reserve is in poor condition and some areas have little forest canopy, so as part of the environmental plan for the scheme, work is being carried out to bring it up to a good standard over the next four to five years.

New cycle paths for community park

The new Derriford Community Park is set to become home to a network of cycle paths.

Plans show exciting designs for an upgrade to the old tramway running through the Forder Valley Local Nature Reserve, which will link Longbridge Road to the new Forder Valley Link Road scheme.

A second part will create a brand new, high quality walking and cycling route along the Seaton Valley linking between Crownhill and Poole Farm and Forder Valley Road.
