Southwold Town Council is pleased to announce the creation of a new public green space on the corner of Pier Avenue and Mights Road. The Southwold Town Council’s Planning and Development Committee worked closely with a local landscaper, Louis Champain, to achieve a garden design that reflects the character of the town and promotes biodiversity.
The garden uses wooden structures and pebbles that echo Southwold’s coastal features. All of its plantings are pollinator friendly. The three trees are a native species, Paul’s Scarlet Hawthorne, which should make a spectacular display of pink blossom in the Spring as they mature. The brick-work of the retaining wall was repaired and the Town is buying a new bus shelter to replace the existing one. Equity Estates (the developers of Lords Terrace) have paid for the cost of landscaping.
The Town Council will arrange for the garden to be maintained to a high standard. The Council hopes everyone will enjoy its display throughout the seasons.
