The trees and woodland that grow on and around Shireburne Caravan Park are considered to provide visual amenity value to the area, and are protected by the Shireburne Park Tree Preservation Order.
In addition, some of the flora and fauna is protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act, and the entire area is considered a County Biological Heritage Site.
Management of the site is carried out with the objective of maintaining tree coverage and biodiversity – tree surgery or felling is only carried out on health and safety grounds, and with due consideration given to the impact on nature conservation. The use of herbicides and pesticides is also prohibited.
We encourage wildlife through the planting and maintenance of wild areas, as well as creating semi-natural and artificial habitats. As a consequence you can see, hear and encounter a plethora of wildlife!
