A greenfield site currently home to a group of frogs who mate their every year will be transformed into a mass building site according to a letter sent to residents by housing developer Bovis homes.
Residents close to the controversial Chester Road development site have recently been notified that work will start next week.
A letter was sent to a number of properties on Thursday stating that work on the greenfield site between Chester Road and Well Meadow will start on Monday 7th March. The developer Bovis Homes expect that the first show home will be built within the next 6 weeks.
The controversial site was at the heart of a community led campaign to prevent development which culminated in a bitter protracted planning appeal. But whilst the dark clouds loom for the frogs, the impact upon local residents will be just as great.
