Welton lake and the adjoining Wilderness, dating from the 18th-century, are currently the subject of a planning approval to build 3 houses
In the early part of 2019, developers removed all fish stocks from the lake. Shortly afterwards, the lake water was drained and a gulley excavated in the far-side bank to stop the lake from refilling however, since then, building work has largely been suspended.
21 Nov 2020 – Things seem to moving forward again, and the Parish Council advise that:
- Tree maintenance and undergrowth management is due to commence imminently.
- Groundwork of the build is expected to commence early December.
16 June 2021 – Adrian Beck, Site Manager has been in communication with WPC Planning and forwarded a short term programme of the build at the Wilderness. Please note the start date of the piling – the concrete piles will be hammered into the ground by a large machine. This will probably be the loudest part of the works and are due to start w/c 23rd August 2021 and should last for approximately 1 week.
