Robertson Homes have advised that sections of hedgerow have been reduced in height for advertising purposes and that all appropriate permissions were granted by DBC. These sections will be allowed to grow back.
It has always been Robertson Homes intention to retain the hedge line along the A67, with some thinning works to ensure this is allowed to thrive. There will be some additional planting behind the existing hedgerow, to reinforce the screening of the development
Within the next 2/3 weeks, the security fencing on Gate Lane will be removed and the area landscaped – hence the covering of the foundations of the two affordable homes, as these will be the last two properties to be built.
