The 'Spring Tidy Up' was implemented by Estates in a collaborative cross-divisional effort to enhance the use and appearance of existing features on Campus
Over a four week period commencing March 20th and in conjunction with the Easter break, several areas across the Campus were subject to landscaping and enhancement.
This saw the provision of new grass and planting alongside new fencing along footpaths to help regenerate the landscape around the Estate.
The creation of new wider paths along popular thoroughfares across Campus - where former desire lines lay between and around buildings causing grass and landscaping to erode - will allow the greenery to return while addressing the changing use of the Estate.
The provision of knee rails to certain areas comes in tandem with the integration of desire paths into the existing path network of the Campus.
Sometimes a desire path can cause erosion to areas which would be considered undesirable or in ways considered unsustainable and therefore the installation of fencing to manage footfall around the campus is necessary.
The following areas were worked on:
The large grass area outside INTO & The Health Centre
Pathways around Colman House & Victory House
Pathway running from Queens Building towards BMRC
Pathway between the Computing Centre and Norfolk Terrace
