BUILDERS PROMISE TOWN CENTRE CLEAN-UP OPERATION

DEVELOPERS LEAVE ROADS AROUND CHEADLE CAKED IN MUD

DEVELOPERS who left roads around Cheadle caked in mud insist they’re now taking action to clear up the mess.
Routes through the town centre were left covered in dirt and stones by tractors taking spoil from a building site off Bank Street to be recycled.
The mess prompted a string of complaints from residents in the area, but Harper Construction says it’s now paying for a roadsweeper to ensure any further problems are cleared up immediately.
John Hanford, site manager for the company, explained: “Our vehicles did leave a lot of mud and stones on the road as they took soil and debris through the town.
“But we’ve now brought in a roadsweeper to sort out the problem and it will be back every time it’s needed for the next six weeks or so.
“That’s being organised through private contractors that we’re paying for and we’re also using our own staff on site to go around town and sweep up as best they can.
“The tractors won’t be in operation tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday – there is rain forecast so we’ve cancelled that aspect of the operation.
“They’ll be back on Monday, but as the roadsweeper will now follow the tractors whenever necessary, there should be no further issues.”
Town councillor Julie Bull was among those who alerted developers to the need for a clear-up operation.
She said: “Roads around the town were a real mess on Monday and Tuesday, but the company has assured me that they’ll keep a close eye on it from now on.”
Harper Construction is building 30 houses at the Meadow Drive development for Telford and Wrekin Housing Association.
