Re: Bircherley Green

Is it known what the archaeologists are looking for/found? It's standard practice for archaeologists to be given access to sites of interest when demolition takes place.

Re: Bircherley Green

At present many of those I talk to have difficulty understanding why the first part of the project seems to spend so much time moving piles of demolished building back and forth around the same plot when you have closed the car park to move to the next phase’. It probably would have helped if Wrenb...

Re: Bircherley Green

I’ve heard that there are financial issues with the redevelopment and so it’s now on hold. They are going to look to re-let the units for three years before attempting to start the works again. What this means for the pile of rubble where the hotel was going to be who knows. This is ridiculous and ...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

I'd agree. An Inquiry is a dead cert.
