Update on Cowan’s Camp

The newt ecology work has now been suspended for the hibernation period and will resume in February, weather permitting. The bat work has been completed and all asbestos has been removed by specialists.

Demolition work is underway. They propose to leave the walls up whilst demolishing the roof structure to minimise dust, then take the walls down. A sprayer will be on site to dampen the dust down. Two buildings will be left until the newt work has been completed early next year as there is evidence of newt activity in the foundations.

Road signs have been erected and modified to prevent HGV traffic from Cowan’s Camp using the High Street.
