Standford Grange Farm and Eveley Wood This option would also include a visitor centre facility to support the use of the site as a country park. The visitor centre in both options presents a range of educational opportunities to link to the adjacent existing and proposed schools north of the site, and to interpretation facilities proposed for the Ecostation (the Old Fire Station). Two potential locations are shown, reflecting the merits of consolidating built facilities in the existing farm complex, but also recognising there are transport and movement issues along Whitehill Road which may constrain development.
Access through the woodland will be managed to prevent damage to sensitive woodland soils and paths will be restricted to a single northsouth path and an east west orientated path. A potential link through to the Deadwater Valley should be pursued to further integrate the area. Similarly, the potential routing of the Shiprightâ€™s Way through the area will link the farm area into the wider strategic cycle network.
In both options, active woodland management will be implemented within Eveley Wood to maximise the habitat potential of this ancient woodland.
