Development Work due to commence at Site H49

MCC has been advised that work is due to commence on site H49, next week, from Monday 9th August onwards.

The initial works will see the wall at the bowling green taken down and a ramp created from the A91 down through the bowling green. This ramp will give access to the site to allow the underground diversion of the existing electricity cables to be carried out by Scottish Power.

It is anticipated that a formal Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be issued by the Council, prior to the commencement of any work, which is likely to be in force for several weeks, until the access ramp has been completed. MCC will forward on this information as soon as it is received.

According to the advice received by MCC, the programme over the coming weeks will comprise:

  • 9/10 August – trees at Bowling Green to be assessed by Springfield’s ecologist
  • 11 Aug – careful removal of stone wall and trees (subject to ecology survey) to allow access to site
  • 12 Aug – 20 Aug works to create vehicular ramp into site
  • 23 Aug – works to divert overhead electricity line carried out by specialist contactor on behalf of Scottish Power

Following this initial work, development across the wider site is likely to start, soon thereafter.

Further information on the plans to develop the site is now available in the CONSTRUCTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN which was released yesterday on the Council Planning web-site. The Plan can be accessed via the following link:

Should you have any queries or issues regarding this development, Springfield has provided contact details for Paul Denham, the development Project Manager, who is based at Springfield’s Head Office. Paul can be contacted by telephone on 01324 555536 or by email at
