Tree pruning and temporary suspension of parking around central garden area – Monday 15th-Wednesday-17th November

Tree surgeons from Keith Archer’s Tree Care Specialists from will be on-site between Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th to undertake essential annual gardening work to prune back the trees in the central garden area.

In order to facilitate this work all parking bays both visitor and resident allocated spaces around the central garden bed will need to be temporarily suspended. This is to facilitate access by the contractors to the trees and also to avoid any risk of potential damage due to falling branches etc.

All affected residents with allocated spaces should make alternative arrangements either by parking outside the development/on the street or getting agreement to temporarily use another resident’s empty space by one of the blocks. Should neither of those two options be viable please contact and we will allocate you a temporary parking space.

Unfortunately visitor bays will not be available during this time as priority needs to be given providing temporary spaces for resident allocated spaces. Any visitors must park offsite.

Parking spaces located adjacent to the blocks and on the forecourts of houses will not be affected. Residents who have one of these spaces but is not using it during this time and would be prepared to offer it to help should also contact

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Tree Pruning

The trees on the estate are being pruned this week starting with the tall trees in the central bed.

We will start at the roadside end and so on 15th/16th please do not park cars by  the central bed outside house numbers 48- 52 and 11- 15 to avoid any  damage to cars. Instead residents and visitors can park at each end of the estate. On the 17th and 18th please do not park by the other end of the central bed at the river end outside house numbers 44-47 and 16 – 19.

Cars will be on house forecourts do not need to be moved for tree cutting.

Unfortunately there is some overlap with the jetwashing as they are coming back to sand the areas that were washed so these areas need to be avoided at times as well.

We apologise for the inconvenience and overlap of the two jobs but we had great difficulty finding times when contractors were available.

Carol and Lis from the board are coordinating and  will do their best to help with the car parking situation.  Any problems or difficulties please email or
