Thank you for your comment regarding the bank to Welford Road. We recently inspected the slope and footway and the condition does not appear to be deteriorating significantly - however, work is certainly required. The erosion of the soil slope is an ongoing issue and we have looked at a number of options for addressing this whilst ensuring that the stability of the fences at the top of the slope is not compromised. We are currently finalising a design which does not require excavation, with the expectation that this will allow repairs to be implemented this financial year. The trees were removed in February to avoid any issues with working during the nesting season – unfortunately, this has allowed the weeds to grow rapidly. The proposed works to stabilise the slope will include removal of the weeds followed by a replanting scheme on completion which should limit any further weed growth.
