Fenton’s Wood and Hartree Way, Kesgrave « Back

Client – Taylor Wimpey

OASIS successfully negotiated with Suffolk Coastal District Council for the removal of a specified hoggin pathway providing a £20k saving for the client.

OASIS adopted the woodland and tree belt for £5k less than the Local Authority’s commuted sum request. Total sum received £95k, jointly invested in one asset. The saving achieved was £25k. 

Managing Fenton’s Wood and Hartree Way, Kesgrave  
In preparation for adoption, OASIS commissioned a comprehensive Woodland Management Plan from James Blake Associates and an annual safety audit with associated tree works.

  • This has ensured correct management of the trees and grounds, thus protecting local wildlife such as bats, and promoting biodiversity.
  • OASIS have undertaken extensive remedial works since adoption to ensure that local residents are able to make full use of the woodland amenity without risk.
