Keep checking back for more updates as the homes start to take shape!
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.
Check out our new 360 video and look at every angle of the site that you want to see!
There’s lots of greenery around the actual plots, and a path that takes you all the way around

We’ve got the diggers and the rollers out, building out the road through the site
The plots are being marked out! And you can see in this video how big each plot is
Preparation works in progress so that we can install attenuation tanks in case of a hundred year flood event
