Work has started this winter to put up new anti-climb fencing along Madeira Drive, and concrete unstable sections of wall along Duke’s Mound.
The Japanese Spindle is flowering, and a Portslade Green Gym works party organised by Building Green will be doing some vegetation management at the Duke’s Mound end in February. This work will keep the pavement clear of plants, remove the more stubborn weeds and maximise biodiversity along the foot of the Victorian green wall.
The plan is to plant gaps in this section of the Madeira Drive green wall with new spindle plants, which will be trained up newly installed wires for support.
Building Green is awaiting the Council’s planned consultation on the future of the Terraces and green wall, which were promised in the new year.
