Project updates

Update by Anthony Birkett

Hi Everyone

You will have noticed that we have started working on the South side of The Burn now. We've set up a small fenced area for storage and we are working by the bridge in preparation for crossing The Burn. We are still expecting to finish working on the grassed area off Hopgarth Gardens in the next coupe of weeks, however this area will be retained for storage - albeit a much smaller area.

It looks like the weather over the weekend may be improving, so enjoy your bank holiday!

Hi Everyone

As you will see we are continuing to work on the grassed area of Hopgarth Gardens.

On Thursday 22 August 2019 we will need to hand dig two trial holes in the footpath opposite Cone Terrace. A footpath closure will be in place for that day only while we complete this task, please follow the diversion. (The photo attached shows the footpath that I am referring to)

We will then need to close the footpath directly to the North of the Burn from Monday 26 August 2019. This will be in place for a period of up to 2 weeks.

I have attached a copy of a letter that will be received by those overlooking the work here

Hi Everyone

As you can see, we've now established our compound area just of Hopgarth Gardens and we have now started on the drainage work at this location. Next week we will continue in the same vein and start on the drainage towards the pipe bridge across the Burn.

I've attached a couple of pictures taken this morning.

Hi

You may have noticed that work has started on the grassed area off Hopgarth Gardens. We've started setting up our compound area and will be beginning the pipelaying soon.

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce the team. Managing the site and with control over the day to day activities on site is Lawrence Davies. Mark Nicholson is the Contracts Manager who will oversee the scheme as a whole. Customer Service Manager is Christine Taylor who is responsible for engaging with the community. And finally, I will be working closely with Christine and regularly attending site to help with any issues or concerns that our neighbours may need to address.

If you see any of us around, feel free stop us, we're happy to chat and answer any questions you may have.

Regards

Tony
