Environmental Policy

At Brookside Country Park we care for the environment. Please help us by reading our policy and following the suggestions.

What We Do

Recycling

  • We recycle all our glass, tins, paper, cardboard and plastic bottles.
  • Please separate your rubbish and use the recycling bin provided on the far side of the barrier.

Energy Conservation

  • Many of our taps are easy release including the showers.
  • Many of our light bulbs are low energy bulbs.
  • Our heating system is set on a frost stat and only comes on under certain temperature saving unnecessary use.

Thoughtful Purchasing

  • We use local producers and suppliers whenever possible.
  • Please think of the environment before making any purchases and re-use shopping bags.

Transport

  • The best way to cut pollution is to reduce the number of car journeys. Please walk, cycle or use public transport whenever possible. A guide to local public transport and bus timetables are available in reception.

Trees and Grounds

  • We have planted over 150 trees and over 300 Laurel hedges around the park and have areas of natural growth. Including the woods sited at the far end of the park. There is an abundance of small creatures that use the park.
  • The park has large open grassed areas and we pride ourselves on the use of flowers and plants to enhance the beauty of the park as well as keeping it in line with a countryside setting.
  • We have bird boxes placed all around the park to encourage the native birds to roost including an owl box frequented by a snowy barn owl.

What we plan to do

  • We also intend to continue to increase the number of native plants and hedges around the site and replace non-native species.

Brookside Country Park is surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and by following these simple suggestions we can help to keep it that way. We welcome your feedback in ways we could improve and would appreciate your help.
