Site Preparation Works commenced on 4th February and are expected to take 28 weeks. The Project Manager, Tony Smith, has supplied us with details of the complex sequence of operations involved. We have been assured that as much as possible of the excavated material will be re-used on site, and contractors' lorries will be directed away from Gateacre village. Countryside Properties Ltd are due to take over management of the site in May/June.

Here are Urban Regen's illustrations of the planned Site Preparation Works (Feb-Sep 2016):
