March 2018. This is a view on Thorn Road looking east. Trees have been felled on the edge of the field, a 6.10 hectare site. This is in preparation for development of the field into an employment site. A 3m shared use Footway and Bridleway is to be installed on the south side of Thorn Rd, and a grass embankment. In the distance is a recently installed pegasus crossing. Bus stops and shelters, one either side of the crossing, were also proposed as part of the planning application CB/15/04918.
