Since 2017 Solihull Council has been successful with European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) applications to undertake a wide range of habitat and nature improvement projects. This funding has delivered improved conservation status for habitat across publicly accessible green space within the urban areas of Solihull Borough.

Solihull MBC propose environmental improvements in Tudor Grange Park to the large pond and associated watercourses currently in poor ecological condition. The focus of the project is to deliver improved habitat and water quality within the pond and brook which will enhance its wildlife potential.

We are inviting consultants to: provide the necessary surveys including water quality testing, silt analysis and topographic surveys; and to provide a feasibility study and outline design of enhancement options.

It is expected that the targeted main works will involve silt removal from the pond and the works contract would be carried out during 2022. The works are also expected to include re-naturalisation of the main feeder stream (Alderbrook) which feeds into the pond from west and leaves the pond southward and exits via a culvert in the park, and ecological enhancement of the area where surface water feeds into the pond from the north east side. The watercourse improvements would be expected to include: concrete slab removal and naturalisation of the channel; re-profiling of brook banks; management of bankside trees and shrubs; and planting of native species.
