Bank works

Lichfield District Council has started a project to strengthen the bank along Stowe Pool.

This spring, Lichfield District Council is filling in the horseshoe shaped gaps on the bank that borders Stowe Pool and Stowe Road. These are the cut outs where trees once stood, but have since been removed.

A contractor is now filling in the gaps left by the trees with earth. To complete the project, top soil will be moved from various works around other parks to cover the in-filled holes, and the council’s parks team will then seed the areas to create a streamlined and reinforced grassed bank around Stowe Pool.

Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “Stowe Pool is a beautiful and much loved historic parks site. It’s popular with walkers and visitors who enjoy the beautiful views across to the cathedral and St Chad’s Church, and it’s vital that we preserve this important area. These works will make the bank around Stowe Pool stronger, more attractive and safer and we’re pleased to get underway with the project.”
