Ellough AD Plant leads the way by allowing its borders to become a roadside nature reserve!



Recently a member of the public contacted us to request that we stop trimming the overgrowth around the border of our Ellough AD Plant so that it could revert back to a natural state, providing a safe haven for wildlife and local fauna.

Coming from a green and ecologically friendly background, we could understand the benefits proposed and at a recent board meeting it was unanimously agreed that where possible and safe to do so we would allow the borders to remain unhindered in growth and natural.
