VEGETATION CLEARANCE TEAM
03rd February 2022
Mark, Simon and I cleared ER54 on the Eastern side of A256 today (6 man-hrs).
It will be a similar length job to do the Western side of A256. Maybe best to do in the Summer by which time nettles will need strimming.
Strimming could then also be done to identify the correct line of the path across to Whitfield.
Best regards, Andrew
The clearance have been busy recently, clearing paths in the Dover area. The team have also been undertaking surveys of paths identified by KCC as needing clearing so that a future programme of works can be developed.
Four members of the team have now been trained in the use of petrol strimmers/brush cutters, so they are able to be far more productive.
Under the leadership of John Shale, regular liaison with KCC helps identify those paths that need clearance, as well as ensuring KCC give the go ahead for the work to be carried out.
If anyone comes across a problem with a path blocked by overgrown vegetation, please report it to KCC in the first instance and keep John Shale informed.
Anyone wishing to volunteer to assist with Vegetation Clearance activities please contact John Shale.
