Allotments – Cefn Road

Following a number of complaints regarding dog excrement and damaged plants at the Cefn Road allotments, all residents adjacent to the allotments have been contacted to remind them not to allow dogs on the allotments at any time. The allotment site is for allotment tenants only, for the purpose of cultivation of crops.

The Council provides a large open space in the area for leisure purposes and this can be accessed without going through the tenant’s allotment site.

TREES

Rogerstone Community Council promote the way trees enhance our natural environment and will not routinely take down trees unless there is an overriding health and safety reason.

Any requests to take down or lop trees will always be reported to members to consider any special circumstances.

TREES AT THE WELFARE GROUNDS

Following the removal of dangerous and potentially dangerous trees at the Welfare Grounds, the Community Council are considering a replanting schedule to try to restore the natural environment. A linear orchard is planned in front of the wall separating the Welfare Grounds and Jubilee Park.

The Community Council regret having to remove the existing trees, which were necessary to comply with Health & Safety requirements, but would like to thank users of the Welfare Grounds for their patience whilst the most appropriate restoration scheme is developed.
