We have worked with leading arboricultural consultants Tree Solutions, and followed their advice in achieving a reconfiguration of the estate that will result in the loss of no Category A trees and following their plan we aim to plant over 1000 new trees in the coming years. Tree preservation and management is part of a wider ecological strategy. Our advisors, Ecology Services, have undertaken a comprehensive habitat survey and all their recommendations will lead to the increase in habitats for the local wildlife.
Today we are committing a further £15 million to deliver an ambitious masterplan vision that will create 150 new jobs covering a diverse range of skills, sectors and career paths in retail, green keeping, hospitality, management and marketing. During construction we will be creating a further 200 jobs to deliver the whole project.
We regularly host Charity Golf Days at our golf clubs to help raise money for charities that we feel directly support our local communities.
