Update by Ian Davison

Hi all

Apologies it’s been some time since I last posted an update. You will have received a letter in the last week or so giving notification that our contractor will be back onsite to commence enabling works in the playing fields from the 4th November. We anticipate being onsite for up to four weeks.

The enabling work will consist establishing the site access off Derwentwater Road to ensure that when the main works commence we get off to a flying start. It is likely that asset protection works will be required on the 3rd party utilities that are located under the access track, this will protect them from damage when being trafficked by construction plant.

Copies of the Notification letter and schematic are posted on the Planned Works tab.

The main works will follow and are planned to commence in January 2020, we will be in touch later in the year with more information regarding these works. I would like to thank you in advance for your patience while we carry out this phase of the project, every effort will be made to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.


If you require any further information or advice please contact our Customer Centre on 0345 717 1100 or visit to request a call back from the project team.

Kind Regards
