The council has funds from developers to improve Bramblefields Local Nature Reserve (LNR) in Chesterton, near Cambridge North station.

There are several suggestions for how this money would best be spent, and a consultation is being held from today, October 20, until Deceber 1 so that residents can have their say.

The plans include:

Installing a variety of bird and bat boxes across the site

Installing a new pond (this has already been secured through the planning application for the adjacent Chesterton Station, funded by Network Rail. It is proposed the works will be implemented by the City Council at the same time as these enhancements)

Restoring the existing pond, dipping platform and interpretation board

Updating and renewing interpretation panels

Creating earth mounds for amphibians and reptiles with flower rich planting for pollinating insects

Removing the redundant play equipment wooden poles

Increasing bench provision

The council aims to implement the works prior to March 2018.

Full details of the consultation and areas of improvement can be found online.
