Dursley News - March 2007

Nothing is standing still in Dursley at the moment as new developments are springing up all over town. The Crest-Nicholson construction on the old Bymacks site is moving nearer to completion as a new one begins on the old Mawdsley's site adjacent to Uley Road. Similarly, clearance work is ongoing at the Long Street end of the Lister/Littlecombe site as further landscaping is taking place at the other end.

Elsewhere, the old petrol station and garage which until recently served customers at Woodmancote has been cleared in preparation for yet more houses to go up.
