Pangbourne River Meadow
(updated 3rd July 2015)
The area used for the contractor's compound has now been reopened for public use, but the access track area will remain fenced off a little longer. The bare area where the footpath crossed the compound access track will be dealt with in due course. The landscape contractor will carry out watering and reseeding if necessary. As agreed with Pangbourne Parish Council (PPC) the reinstatement works will not be considered complete until PPC has confirmed that it is satisfied with our reinstatements on its river meadow.
