Ducks, coots, a pair of swans and the odd cormorant – it’s perfect weather for the native wildlife to paddle. But the high spring tide and constant rain have made work tricky for the team revamping Worthing’s Brooklands Lake.
Five Rivers Environmental was awarded a contract to carry out the environmental work to revitalise the attraction at the heart of the park in Brighton Road by Worthing Borough Council last summer.
Contractors have been busy in the last few months excavating about two swimming pools worth of silt and debris from the bottom of the lake so far to create new banks and an extra islands which will encourage wildlife to return to the area.
It’s a tough job, especially over winter. The task has been made even harder by high spring tides and constant rainfall. But, regardless, teams hope to get everything complete by spring time.
It comes as more than 750 people have had their say on a survey which will be used to develop a masterplan for future of Brooklands Park. Members of the public have just one week left to give their views on the council-run consultation.
