Dursley News - August 2013

Construction of new houses at Littlecombe has really accelerated of late with the good weather and the site has been heavily reprofiled and terraced to make way for more houses. In addition the new bridge required to provide access to them is substantially complete.

Elsewhere around town there has been some ongoing excavation work near the old 'Ramping Cat' pub in Cam in what appears to be preparation for new construction work.
