Sevenoaks Road Recreation Ground – an 8000+ trees scheme
The plan of the Eastbourne Carbon Neutral 2030 Campaign is to reduce carbon emissions in response to the climate emergency. It includes plans to plant over 8000 trees in the Sevenoaks Road Recreation Ground as part of a project linking Eastbourne ECO Action Network & Eastbourne Borough Council with the Forestry Commission Urban Challenge Fund.
The planting will involve a variety of species and a mix of different sizes of trees, as well as hedges, shrubs and wildflowers, and creation of wildlife habitats. The bulk of the planting will be in the southern section of the park leaving a substantial amount of open space.
The scheme will involve consultation with the local community including schools and local residents. ECO Action Network volunteers will help with planting and maintenance stages of the project. Help from the wider community would be much appreciated.
