Restoration work to be carried out including some removal of the silt from the lake and looking to create an engineering solution to reduce significantly any future silting taking place. It is also the intention to create a space for visitors to sit and enjoy the area.
Alongside this an ongoing programme of woodland maintenance will ensure the best possible environment for wildlife and inform visitors of the history of the site by developing its heritage. If possible, identify and replace some of the original specimen trees planted in the 19th century.
The site will also be somewhere to hold events celebrating the heritage and nature for the benefit of the local and wider community.
Volunteering days will be held that will help to maintain the area and develop the skills of individuals. Also provide education opportunities for children from inner wards of Burton and surrounding areas.
East Staffordshire Borough Council will be the responsible authority for on-going maintenance of the site. There is a strong drive from local groups to continue use of the site and utilise the resource as an educational tool. The local community is proactive and will continue in voluntary activities. It is intended that the majority of the partners will continue to contribute to the activities and maintenance of the site.
