Further to the correspondence below I have been informed that our groundworks contractor will be starting onsite tomorrow.
The first action will be to deliver an excavator to the site in order to begin forming the site access from Gate Lane so that any future deliveries can be offloaded inside the side and off Gate Lane. The plan is to deliver the excavator at around 9.15-9.30 in the morning to avoid the morning traffic. The low loader lorry which will deliver the excavator will need to stop on Gate Lane for around 15 minutes to offload the excavator into site. This may restrict the access along Gate Lane for the short period though we will have staff on hand to direct traffic.
As per our discussion when we met on site previously the works for the remainder of the week will consist of the single machine creating an access into the site with intermittent stone deliveries. Any small vehicles associated with the works will enter the site via the existing field gates as discussed.
After these works all future deliveries and vehicle movements into the site will be able to drive straight off Gate Lane and into the site.
I understand there is a parish council meeting tonight so if you could please pass on this information to your colleagues.
With regard to the hedge trimming. We are currently preparing to trim the hedges around the full development and will include Gate Lane within these works.
