Contractors are to start clearing vegetation, not covered by the legal injunction on Armada Way, to prepare for the removal of the felled tree trunks.
The strimming and scrub reduction works in the compound between North Cross and Mayflower Street will start at 8am to 5pm tomorrow (Friday 15 September) and continue along Armada Way.
An independent ecologist will be on site throughout and there will be regular breaks in the clearance to check for wildlife, including nesting birds.
The clearance of the overgrown vegetation is necessary to provide clear and safe access for the long-awaited removal of the remaining stumps and felled trees.
No further trees will be felled and the work will be carried out using strimmers, brush-cutters, hedge trimmers and other hand tools. The works will not directly impact the stumps or stack arisings from the felled trees.
Should the works over-run, they will recommence at 8am on Monday 18 September.
