4. Full protection of Brooms Pond newt habitat, and more ponds on restoration.
What Does This Mean?
Brooms Pond contains Great Crested Newts, a protected species. The pond therefore does need protection and needs to be managed and maintained. More ponds would provide more habitats. As pointed out by an earlier forum message the existing pond would benefit from some local help, now, and we need to organise ourelves to do this and thereafter stop our efforts being spoiled, without preventing natural envoyment. Can UK Coal do this? Most certainly they could by involving other community support organisations to work on our behalves while in the process of restoring the site. But would we be involved and have ownership. Unlikely.
