The fence along the access road to the allotments and Redland Green Farm was removed by Bristol City Council on Thursday 15th December 2011. This is a positive outcome, following the campaigning efforts of the local community; thanks to everyone who contributed.
Western Power have recently been working on this area, replacing one of the major electricity supply cables that serves North Bristol; they will reinstate the grassed areas once the work is completed. The ditch is already back to draining and carrying surface water, and will continue to play its part in sustaining the habitat for the surrounding flora and fauna.
