Some weeks ago we added an article to our web headed ‘From Hedgerows to Barbed Wire’. The article gave details of changes to the fields that lay between Chobham Road and Kiln Lane. The KRA received quite a bit of feedback following the publication of the article and one point that a number of residents raised was the future of ‘The Mound’.
The Mound is the raised wooded area that lies between Chobham Road and The Priory. The KRA took the residents concerns seriously and wrote to the Council seeking a higher degree of protection for this area (click on the letter). Since writing to the Council we have taken two of our Councillors for a walk around the areapointing out the problem with the barbed wire and The Mound. We have also invited Woking’s Aboricultural Officer the visit the site with us. We will keep you posted on any developments. Please continue to provide the KRA with feedback on what you think of the work that has taken place in what some call ‘The Priory fields’ and whether you believe that ‘The Mound’ should be saved.
