The park, water meadows and nature reserve were developed to create a natural flood plain to protect the commercial development, improve natural habitats and increase local biodiversity. The 80-acre waterside nature reserve is a fabulous asset to the local community and the environment.
The project covered a total of 2.2 hectares and included the reconfiguration of a large lake, installation of bridges, new hard landscaping areas and pathways as well as wild-flower meadows. The works were particularly sensitive, with the surrounding area being a wildlife habitat, therefore careful consideration has been given to ecology. Appointed ecologists carried out habitat survey reports and a section of the lake had to be temporarily cordoned off because of the nesting sites of resident birds.
