Message from Alan Charters, Director of Capital Developments
"The University is rightly proud of its green open spaces, the habitats they provide for wildlife and the pleasure they give to all of us living, studying and working on campus. We have a long term vision to improve our campus, building new environmentally efficient student residences and creating new open parkland areas that will provide a haven for wildlife and a tranquil space for us. While we are working towards this vision, there will be a period of transition. While every effort has been made to plan around existing trees, some will need to be felled to make way for the new buildings and pedestrian boulevards. The next phase of the works begins next week (w/c 17 May) when trees will be felled between the Library and Dalton Tower. This is obviously very regrettable, but once the works to the pedestrian boulevard are complete, towards the end of the summer, replacements of native and ornamental trees will be planted."
