An update from the Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust:
Work on the Netherhay Lane site is progressing well and on time. Elevations are now rising from the foundation blocks, brickwork and facings of Portland Stone are now visible. Large attenuation tanks to manage the surface water run off have been installed
BGP CLT and the Broadwindsor Group Parish Council have put forward the name ‘Northcombe Lea’ for this site to Dorset Council.
Our community project, Homemaking, has received grant funding from Dorset Council’s Community and Culture Fund. When waste timber from the site becomes available, community volunteers will creatively up-cycle the material to make bird and bat boxes etc, some of which we hope can be housed on the development site in due course. This project, which also includes photography, music, song and art work, is being coordinated on behalf of BGP CLT by Andrew Pastor.
Unfortunately, thefts of materials from site have recently taken place. 24/7 CCTV on site is now in place and CG Fry have also installed more secure storage areas. Any additional information anyone can provide about these thefts would be gratefully received by CG Fry’s Project Manager at the site.
