Pix Brook Restoration

Restoration work is in progress on the Pix Brook watercourse which runs through the Howard Park and Gardens in Letchworth. Hertfordshire County Council’s Countryside Management Service is working with North Hertfordshire District Council to complete the project by the end of May.

It involves removing vegetation and thinning the trees along the watercourse to increase the levels of light reaching the brook to help increase the biodiversity of the plants that grow there and improve the natural habitat.
