Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty?
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Officially yes!
I cycled around the village taking a few photographs. The older part of the village certainly looks unkept these days. The roads need resurfacing, sweeping and litter collected.
In the Victory Fields area there are huge amounts of earth works that require completion. I spoke to someone from the developers who intimated that the last developer on site: Linden or Bovis will be responsible for removing the huge amounts of earth and grade the area around the attenuation pond. He was convinced they would just walk off site. I hope not. Maybe, explains why Linden are working at break neck speed to leave the area.
What is a surprise on this development, is that developers have not followed their phase sequencing. Other sites in the country complete a phase before going onto the next, we are already on Phase 6 and Phase 1 is not complete! Even items like street lighting on Victory Fields are located incorrectly and some even fail to illuminate.
Then there is the unsightly hoarding around the shop area, the incomplete roads and the destroyed wall near the roundabout.
If the site is completed as we all desire then it will be a beautiful place to live. I am just a doubter – whats worse is CDC are not policing the development as they should.
