The Parish Council has almost completed the first phase of the its plan to tackle ash dieback disease at Wapley Bushes.

If you have been up to Wapley Bushes recently, you may have seen Teign Trees on site, who have been working hard to monolith and fell diseased ash trees in the Ancient and Centenary woodlands.  These works are almost complete and the Parish Council thanks visitors to Wapley for their patience.

The next phase of the work will be to see how some of the newly cleared area can be used for community projects – there will be an update on this in the New Year.  In the meantime, please can we ask you not to remove any logs from the site, as these will be needed for the projects next year.

If you have any questions about the works, please contact Dodington Parish Council – 01454 866546 /
