Betteshanger Park is a key part of the wider Betteshanger Sustainable Parks vision of a once-in-a-generation opportunity for everyone to see how ‘old energy’ can be transformed into ‘new energy’ and to get involved with the generation of renewable energy first hand.
Land Restoration is the process of returning the land in a given area to some degree of its former state, after some process has resulted in its damage. Over the next 10 months White Land Solutions will add nutrients to the soil to aid the growth of grass and plants. This will restore the land back to its original form
Works Begin on the First Area
Below are some pictures taken of the current condition of the land. Former Colliery soils typically have poor physical soil structure, poor water holding capacity and contain a diverse range of Potentially Toxic Elements
Benefits of Land Restoration
Organic Material will improve soil structure, giving an initial boost to aid growth
The Organic Material acts as a slow release fertiliser providing enough nutrients to aid growth for future years
Reduce the contamination of Potentially Toxic Elements to healthy levels
Improve Ground Water holding capacity
First Load Arrives
The first load is tipped, the materials will add valuable nutrients back to the soil to aid growth
Area 1 Ready for Seeding
With all nutrients incorporated into the existing ground, Area 1 is ready for seeding
Before the ground can be seeded it must be harrowed and have the large stones removed
