We have recently installed two areas of fencing on Broomheath in order help re-establish/ regenerate the natural flora of the heath which was destroyed by fire in 2016.
Broomheath is a small area of natural green space which overlooks Martlesham Creek and is located along Broomheath, off Sandy Lane. The site is predominantly acid grassland and gorse heathland with trees located mainly around the margins. The site is immediately adjacent to the boundary of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) .
The fire in 2016 destroyed a large area of gorse which has not been able to regenerate due to predation of the shoots and seedlings, which are appearing naturally, by deer and rabbit.
Further to local residents installing protection for individual seedlings we applied to the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) grants team for match funding toward the installation of the fence shown in the attached photos.
This application was successful and hence the fence in situ will provide further protection for the majority of individually protected seedlings as well as help with returning this area back to its natural beauty. Areas of heathland such as Broomheath, especially so close to urban areas, are in worldwide shortage, highlighting the importance of this project.
