Colden Common Boardwalk

Colden Common Parish Council had worked with Housing Developer Taylor Wimpey to establish a public right of way in local woodlands.

The brief

Colden Common Parish Council had worked with Housing Developer Taylor Wimpey to establish a public right of way in local woodlands. Due to the wet environment with a high level of tree cover, it was agreed that a standard timber walkway would become very slippery in a short space of time and then subsequently, timber deterioration was inevitable.

Both Taylor Wimpey and the Parish Council recognised that any legacy of the House build had to offer longevity, a viable long term slip resistance, be considerate to the existing environment and offer a genuine cost-effective solution to the problem.

The total length of 500 metres of Boardwalk and turning areas including all structural beams, POLYplank Boards, posts for piers and installation were supplied by Plura POLYdeck. For more information on this exciting scheme, please watch the video below.
