Horseshoe Walk in Great Holm tree management work:

Great Holm residents – the tree inspector at MKC has informed the Parish Council that, regarding the Scots Pine trees at the Horseshoe Walk, some of them have been cut down now as they were causing subsidence to nearby properties. More will be felled in the autumn/winter as part of an MKC landscaping project, and will be replaced with smaller, more appropriate shrubs for the walk. Some of the oaks and more pines will be felled in order to retain the best specimens and best plant up the understorey. It will look worse before it gets better! If further info is forthcoming it will be posted here.

Loughton and Great Holm Parish Council has hired a dog warden, on a pilot scheme. The warden will be issuing fixed penalty notices to anyone caught dog fouling. Part of his work is spray painting dog litter in order to draw attention to it and with the aim of discouraging offenders. The spray paint will degrade over a few days and is safe. The Parish Council acknowledges that most people do pick up their pet litter, and this pilot scheme is with the aim of discouraging the few who do not, and raising awareness of the issue. Thank you for your help.
