Update by Brian Hall

Hello everyone

work in Wylam Wood is well advanced now, laying piping up to the overbridge over the A695. We have been working with our ecology team to minimize damage in the woods and by making changes have saved over 100 trees from having to be felled. No oak trees or other substantial trees have had to be removed. All our site team have been made aware of possible presence of wildlife in the woods and have been checking for newts, birds and small mammals as they go.

We will be establishing a further small site next week on the grassed area just to the south of the allotments. This will be fenced off for safety and pedestrian routes marked out. We will use this site to work onto the playing fields on the old school site. Again we have changed plans so there will be mimimal disturbance to the new grass on the fields. We will be working in this area for the next 9 to 10 weeks.

I will keep you updated as we move onto this site and will be around next week calling on nearby homes.
