Cllrs Lucy Care and Eric Ashburner, indicating the area where car parking will be allowed for anglers by Heatherton PondThank you to everyone who gave their opinion on a parking area for Heatherton Pond. Views were wide-ranging from being keen to see decent parking to a wish for none at all. The safest access point was agreed to be near the brook end of the pond, though some hedge will need to be removed and new planted.

The Earl of Harrington Anglers are working closely with the Council's Parks Department on this scheme. They have appointed a new water bailiff, and are keen to work closely with other users of the pond area, including Friends of Littleover Parks.

Councillor Lucy Care said "The Pond, and the area around it, is clearly valued by many people but there is also scope to make it more interesting and inviting. I hope that this will be the first phase of several careful improvements to make the area more welcoming. Please continue to share your ideas."
