Dursley News - March 2006

A quiet month really, the library has opened and is seeing an increasing number of visitors. Elsewhere, progress continues to be made on the old Bymacks site and effort is ramping up on the Lister-Petter Littlecombe development. Heavy machinery has moved on to this site and much clearance has taken place near the Cam entrance on Church Road. The first stages of work are to remove and profile the old foundry waste tip in preparation for construction of the business units which will hopefully attract new employment into the town.

    Bymacks site, new houses
Viewed from outside the Priory, this is the scene looking into the Crest Nicholson housing complex in Long Street. There's a light dusting of snow on the rooftops of these houses which are now essentially complete.

    Littlecombe site from Kingshill lane
The lower end of Kingshill Lane presents a very different view from what it did a few months back. The trees have all been cut back, opening up the scene to all. The heavy machinery is now on site, preparing the way for the new industrial units due to be built in this area.
