Dursley News - October 2006

There are no significant news items to report this month, but work continues apace on both the Crest-Nicholson site and the smaller Newland "Chestal Court" developments alongside Yellow Hundred. The buildings on the ex-Bymack's site are increasing in number and foundations and piling have been put in on the plot closest to the Priory. In addition the old footpath from the bottom end of Water Street has at last been reopened helping to reduce the walking distance to the town centre.

    Piling the new foundations
This plot of land on the Bymack's site, closest to the Priory is now starting to be built upon and piling the foundations is the first essential task before construction can start.

    Crest-Nicholson houses
As with many modern developments, the streets are quite narrow as can be seen in this picture. Water Street runs across the far end of this road.
