CCNW was appointed by Greater Manchester Ecology Unit to undertake the restoration of 9 ponds, and creation of a new Great Crested Newt pond on the site at Denton Golf Course.
Over the years, the existing ponds silted up and dominated pond species such as reedmace had covered the water surface and choked up the ponds. The ponds within the golf course supported a small population of breeding Great Crested Newts.
By carrying out the enhancement works, making the ponds deeper by desilting and re-grading the side of the ponds would create a better habitat environment and biodiversity for Great Crested Newts and other amphibians to breed in.
