Ponds & Streams 

Aside from the ponds associated with the various sustainable urban drainage schemes in our management, we have a number of more decorative water features that are maintained as habitat and amenity areas for the residents on our developments. 

With the same level of consistent management as other areas of open space, ponds are kept clear of litter and planting is carefully reviewed each season to ensure that it is appropriate for the habitat and it is colonising naturally.  Any dredging or vegetation removal works are carefully considered so as not to disturb wildlife and are typically designed to improve the habitat for wildlife and to enhance the site.  Where appropriate, we also work closely with, and seek advice from external organisations such as The Wildlife Trust, RSPB and Natural England.
