Chapel Point improvement work ‘to improve wildlife habitat’


The nature area at Chapel Point is to receive extra funding to improve wildlife habitat and encourage more visitors.

Lincolnshire County Council will create a pond which it hopes will become a haven for amphibians such as frogs and toads.

The surrounding area will also provide nesting and feeding sites for common garden birds such as wren, blackbird and great tit.

The council will also add a picnic bench and build a path around the pond, suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. There will also be a sculptured wooden seat in the shape of a grass snake for children to explore.

Cllr Colin Davie, executive member for the environment, said: “I am very pleased that we are improving the habitat for wildlife at Chapel Point Nature Area.

“I’m sure the local community will be keen to come and enjoy the new area.”

Work will begin on November 4 and is expected to take two weeks.
