By the end of this week, Hart District Council will have received tenders from up to 10 companies bidding to take forward a range of lake restoration engineering works in 2012. The first phase of works is therefore likely to commence in early February 2012 until the end of March. A second phase of works will then commence in August running until the end of October 2012.
A range of technical studies are continuing as part of the lake wide masterplanning works, this includes lake sediment sampling and analysis, habitat evaluations, works towards securing future funding, mapping of key historic and current lake features, and flood risk assessments.
Guidance on how you can find out more about the restoration project and key documents will be provided in future blog posts.
Fleet Pond Society has copies of all published project documents; please contact Colin Gray, Chairman of FPS (details are on the About page above). Alternatively, please ask Louise Greenwood, the Countryside Ranger for Fleet Pond.
