Worked on previous contract here about 4+ years ago - site is B1 of those area in long term Gateshead plan for Housing http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Building and Development/LiveGatesheadLoveGateshead/JointVenture/Sitemaps.aspx
Nice to see something happening again - the vegetation that was cut down previously has regenerated big style and once certain species get established sometimes difficult to clear and cause planning difficulties
In case of this site the Dingy Skipper butterfly already has case to take some of area to south boundary abutting the railway out of the development area
This was posted by Ken back in August.The heavy plant seems to have gone with the site far from prepared for building work to my uneducated eyes. Anybody know what the next steps and timescales are?
