Builders have moved onto the Our Lady’s school site and have started to fell trees.

The Our Lady’s school buildings will be demolished within the next 3 weeks.

Work has already started to provide an electricity power supply to the new housing development.

The whole scheme, which involves the erection of 55 new homes,  is expected to take about 12 months to complete.

The building contractors have said that all site traffic will follow the Kingsway West/Ascot Way/ Ashford Place/Windsor Garth bus route to access the site.

Residents remain concerned about the poor state of the roads on the route, and in particular the rapidly deteriorating road humps, although whether it would be worth completing permanent repairs before the heavy traffic moves on, is open to question.

    These new houses on this site will ruin Hob Moor. How has the Council managed to push this stupidity through? I haven’t seen planning permission posters and I walk past the place everyday. At present the trees are being ripped down and destroyed, no doubt over the next few weeks it will become a really unpleasant eyesore. What can we do about this? It is a very bad idea to destroy an ancient piece of common land which will be devastated by the building. Has James Alexander taken a back hander, gone mad or both?
