The Developers have informed us that they will be carrying out initial drilling work and some clearance of vegetation on all 3 sites from Monday 22nd January. The main reason for the work is to confirm the position of historical mine shafts so that the final housing layout can be agreed before building work starts later this year.
In order to gain access to Phase 5 the excavators will be using the Wrekin Way Path at the top of Newdale Pool. Access for pedestrians on Wrekin Way will be maintained but when the heavy machinery is being moved pedestrians will have be escorted to ensure their safety.
The maps below indicate the areas affected.
The work is scheduled to last for 4 weeks but the timescale may vary dependant on the drilling results.
