HOUSING developers whose contractors are working on constructions which have partially closed a busy dual carriageway say one of its three development stages is due to be completed earlier than expected. The A521 in Blythe Bridge is currently partly shut as three phases of works on land adjacent to the road are being carried out as contractors complete development work on behalf of St Modwen Homes, who were previously granted planning permission to build up to 120 new homes on the site. St Modwen Homes confirmed to the Times and Echo that ‘Phase Two’ was set to finish Tuesday, January 21, six days earlier than previously scheduled.

HOUSING developers who have gained permission to build on land in Uttoxeter say they are aware of reports of asbestos on the site amid concerns from community members. David Wilson Homes Mercia gained permission to build 429 dwellings, a public open space, landscaping draining attenuation areas, access roads and associated works and the demotion of buildings at Hazelwalls Farm on Timber Lane earlier this year. However, several members of the community have raised concerns about safety of the site after photographing mounted heaps of soil segregated off by metal fences and warning signs.
