Tree works will be taking place at the Trewithen Road entrance and near the tennis courts from Monday
Please ensure you follow any diversion signs in the Park and stay well clear of our contractors who will be in high-vis clothing.
We thank you in advance for your patience as we carry out this essential work to ensure everyone can enjoy Penlee Park safely.
Monday morning – Trewithen Road Entrance
A Holm Oak by the lodge needs to be felled.
This means we will have to close the footpath for the morning. Diversion signs will be in place which will send people around the outside of the park.
We will avoid the peak journey times for schools and commuters to works.
From Tuesday – Wellfields Car Park and Park Corner Entrance
One of the large pines by the side of the tennis club needs to be felled.
This will take between 3 to 4 days to complete. We will need to close the footpath from the tennis club to the alleyway leading to Alverton Street over these days to complete the work and a section of Wellfields Car Park will also be closed.
Why are there scheduled tree works in Penlee Park?
Last year a professional arborist carried out a Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA), and found that a small number needed to be felled. Some of this work is needed due to the health and condition of the trees and help benefit the remaining trees in the park.
