Management plan for Trendlewood Park – have your say


A new management plan for a community park in Nailsea has been put together and local people are being encouraged to have their say.

Trendlewood Park in the south east of the town is an important green space providing an extensive space for recreation and is important as a play space for local children, containing a large play area and lots of opportunities for natural play. The park is popular with dog walkers and a bridleway runs along part of the park. It is also used as a route to school and work and links the town with the surrounding countryside.

Local people are now being asked to comment on the second five-year plan for the park.

“A huge amount of work has been achieved as part of the previous management plan,” said Cllr Peter Bryant, North Somerset Council’s executive member whose portfolio includes environment. “This has resulted in the park being greatly improved for the local community visitors and wildlife.  The Friends of Trendlewood Park, who have had an input into the previous and this new plan, have used it to guide their works. They have been instrumental to the improvements seen across the park.”

Cllr Bryant added: “The management plan has also been vital to the park maintaining its Green Flag status for the last five years demonstrating that it is a bench mark of excellence – well maintained, offering diversity, wildlife benefits, with a strong community involvement.”

This second management plan focuses on sustaining the high standard and diversity developed over the previous five years, while looking at opportunities to grow on previous projects for both the community and wildlife.
