The first move by OWPC to strengthen the boundary of the Patch site was the purchase of 420 Pyracantha plants in late 2013. The majority of these were planted along the Western boundary, the remainder on short stretches of the North and East boundaries. This planting met with some success despite the boundary positioning meaning that trees external to the boundary fence reduced both light and rain falling on the plants.
During the Summer of 2015 new palisading was erected to both sides of the Western pedestrian gates and to one side of the main Eastern gate. Additionally the gates at both sides were clad with palisading to increase their effective height to 2.4 metres.
A proposal to make road safety improvements to the H8, Chaffron Way, Woolstone/Woughton on Green junctions is being costed by Milton Keynes Council but funding will be required from the various Parish Councils as the safety record is not bad enough to automatically qualify.
The following drainage works have now been completed in Woughton on the Green
Newport road between the church and Baskerfield Grove
Baskerfield Grove along Newport Road past Goodman Gardens
The only remaining work is now to clean up the ditch the orchard.
