Park gets conservatory renovation

The conservatory in a Huddersfield park is to be restored as part of major regeneration work.

Dozens of trees are to be chopped down in Greenhead Park and the green space will be given a new lake, railings and plant life, according to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

The trees that are being removed will be replaced by 100 new trees and local councillor Christine Stanfield was keen to point out that they werent being removed just for the sake of it.

"These trees are well loved by visitors so its important for people to know that the decision to remove so many has not been taken lightly," she told the paper.

"I trust people will see that these removals are being carried out for the benefit of the park and join me in looking forward to the new developments throughout the park."

The news comes just weeks after a Liverpool park had its century-old conservatory rebuilt as part of a £14 million renovation.
