26/03/20 Statement from Lindum Homes

"Given the ongoing situation with COVID 19 Lindum Homes have taken the decision to close their site and ongoing operations, with the exception of allowing final completions which are already legally tied in. This unfortunately includes work on Westcroft Green.

Lindum Homes sincerely apologise for the length of time these works have taken thus far. The recent wet weather has meant we have not been able to complete the works, and if works had been attempted it would have done more harm than good. Once operations resume and weather conditions improve, works to complete Westcroft Green will be prioritised."
