TransPennine Express/HEYwoods Woodland Project


The TransPennine Express/HEYwoods Woodland Project is a partnership initiative that has seen wildlife and public access improvement works at Priory Way, Hull. The project has seen the woodland— which is owned by Kingston upon Hull City Council—brought back into favorable management status and made more visitor friendly following the creation of a new footpath and improved access along a cycle path through the woodland.

TransPennine Express provided grant support for the project with HEYwoods and Hull City Council joining forces to plan the improvement works. The practical conservation activity has been undertaken by BTCV, using local volunteers to implement the project.

This project is the first of many to benefit from the TransPennine Express Woodland Project. During early-2009, HEYwoods successfully worked with the North Ferriby’s Riverside Walkway Committee to develop another successful grant application under this scheme for new native tree/hedgerow planting & woodland management work.
