Wildlife charity to help plan the future of council nature reserve

Mansfield District Council has engaged Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust to develop a five-year management plan for one of its nine Local Nature Reserves.

The management plan for The Carrs in Warsop will steer developments on the site and suggest further improvements for the Local Nature Reserve, wetland and the provision of areas of botanical interest. It is also integral to the council's efforts in securing another prestigious Green Flag Award next year.

"The Carrs is an important and well-loved beauty spot. We think it deserves to become a Green Flag site and the future plan will help us to achieve this," said Cllr Andrew Tristram, Portfolio Holder for Environment.

"We also need community involvement, so if you love The Carrs and want to see it thrive, please sign up to become a Carrs Community volunteer."

Warsop residents have recently received a leaflet explaining more about the council's work at The Carrs and how they can get involved with conservation projects.

The leaflet can be viewed and volunteers can sign up online at The Carrs page on the Mansfield District Council website.

The management plan will be out for consultation in spring 2016. In the meantime Mansfield District council continues to maintain The Carrs and has started work to create a poppy meadow around the memorial and community orchard, one of many projects undertaken this year at the reserve.
