Pangbourne River Meadow
(updated 25th April 2015)
Work to prepare and grass seed the area which was used for the contractor's compound was completed on Friday 24th April 2015. The landscape contractor will monitor the area until the grass is established, and will carry out watering and reseeding if necessary. The bare area where the footpath crossed the compound access track will be dealt with later. As agreed with Pangbourne Parish Council (PPC) the area will remain fenced off until the new grass has established, which may take until mid summer 2015 depending on weather conditions. Access to the landing stage will be maintained. The reinstatement works will not be considered complete until PPC has confirmed that it is satisfied with our reinstatements on its river meadow.
