May 2021 – Services trench

 

This month the services trench was dug out so that we could put in the piping for the water mains which is the blue in the photos below.

This month we started building out the infrastructure on site, and you can see the road that will go around the development starting to form, as well as some of the plots being marked out.

This month we cleared the site of trees so that we could start the beginning stages of building on our plots! As you can see the big oak tree in the middle of the development will be the focus as you enter the site. We also did some archaeological investigation which is what all the digging is about below.

This month our project manager Martin was on site to meet contractors about the drainage and road network that is going to be needed on site for the future residents to be able to get to their houses! He also got some beautiful shots of the Pound Lane site as well as the retained path that will go between the houses and up towards St Nicholas Church.

This month, the ecologists found a badger sett and thought we might have badgers on site as well as newts! Thankfully it turned out the badgers had moved home, so we haven’t been giving them any trouble.

This month the crew started clearing the trees on site! They brought in some big machinery and also left a lovely oak tree which will be the centre of the site.

Before work starts on site, we need to do ecology, which in this case is making sure the newts are cleared from site and relocated! The newt fence is up to make sure that no newts that have been cleared get back in.
