Northern Arc notification of works: Upcoming site clearance and site investigations works on Isaacs Lane

The works will be carried out from 30 January to 6 February 2021

John Sisk & Son Ltd will soon be conducting site clearance works along Isaacs Lane involving the felling of 8 trees and removal of approximately 31 metres of hedgerow. This work is associated with the construction of the Eastern Bridge and Link Road and will be carried out in accordance with the associated planning consent (DM/20/3247).

While the new road junction with Isaacs Lane means there will be some unavoidable tree loss, the Northern Arc is committed to deliver a 23% biodiversity net gain – meaning the quality of wildlife habitats on site will be higher after the development is complete than before it was begun. New planting at the Eastern Bridge and Link Road site will help to maintain habitat connectivity for wildlife.

The works will be carried out from 30 January to 6 February 2021. In order to undertake the works safely, Isaacs Lane will be closed fully during off peak hours (9:30am to 3:30pm) Monday to Sunday over this period. These works will be undertaken in strict adherence to Government and industry guidance relating to COVID-19.

During these works, residents that live on Isaacs Lane will have full access to their properties. We are hoping that by scheduling the road closures during off-peak hours and putting well-signed diversion routes in place we will limit the impact these works will have.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions about these preparation works or concerns during the work period, please email northernarc@homesengland.gov.uk or to speak with John Sisk & Son Ltd, please call 01727 875 551.
