Planting strategy

The planting strategy is part of wider ambitions to provide Globe Town with a ‘green corridor’ and will enhance green links between local green routes.Tree pit detail: mature, semi mature and fruit trees with sustainable drainage systems (SuDs)

The proposed planting scheme responds to the ambitions of local community groups and is composed of 4 types of planted areas that spreads across the square at different scales, and will improve the local biodiversity:

  • 5 mature trees
  • Woodland area, including 6 semi mature trees
  • Mini orchard, including 4 native dwarf fruit trees
  • 4 mobile planters [1.5 x 1.5m minimum] Medicinal, edible, and bee-friendly plants, will attract different types of insects and bees. Attracting pollinators will be important for maintaining the fruit trees in the area, and will provide a useful tool for teaching and workshops. Easily movable, different types of planting could be tested on different locations on the square.
