We fully understand that people may wish to commemorate a loved one who enjoyed time in a favourite place. However, as with everything related to the small urban green space we manage, careful consideration is required. The sites under our stewardship are designated and as such, we have a duty of care to encourage natural generation of native species of all plants, including trees – and to actively discourage non-native or invasive species.
We are keen to preserve the character of our Common and other open spaces, so suitable opportunities for memorial seats, benches and trees are extremely limited. Therefore, whilst we will always do our best to help, please note that we may not be able to accommodate your wishes.
