Over the last few days, neighbours and friends of the Meadow have observed a number of surveyors working on the land. They have been busy individually tagging the trees with numbered metal badges. Additionally the land itself seems to have been surveyed. A number of spray-painted marks have been made on the ground, one helpfully in the middle of an area of freshly-sown meadow seed.
We have asked the developers, New City Vision, for an explanation and assurance that no damage will be done to the Meadow. Here is their response:
We are currently carrying out some survey work in support of the planning application, none of which will involve heavy machinery. As discussed before if and when we require the need for trial pits we will discuss this with you in advance, we will not disturb NKMC’s work unnecessarily.
