The Parish Council will hold a meeting Thursday or Friday next week to discuss a course of action for the village pond.
There is a very useful article on fresh water habitats and pros and cons of de-silting ponds. The question is do we follow advice for a fresh water habitat pond and not remove any silt or do we treat this as a “fish” pond and remove the silt, deepen the pond with the resultant loss of biodiversity and fresh water habitat? Do we try and combine the two environments?
Your views and comments are welcome early next week before our meeting.
