JPR have been on site to do vegetation clearance, tree protection fencing and slow worm fencing on this new housing development in Malvern.
The importance of site fencing for your development
The developer, Lioncourt Homes, employed JPR to undertake a wide range of site preparation works to meet planning requirements due to the presence of slow worms on site. To get the site to a stage where development could start, JPR carried out a sensitive vegetation clearance plus installation of tree protection fencing.
As the site was in an awkward position due to the proximity of existing properties, JPR had to create access for plant and machinery. As always, JPR work principles are to keep our sites tidy including clearing residential streets of mud and debris from machinery movements.
We were able to use our latest piece of equipment, a Norcar with a flail attachment. This machinery is very popular with ecologists as it exerts around the same amount of ground pressure as a person with a strimmer or brushcutter but can clear 10 times as much vegetation in the same amount of time as a person. It has proved to be very time and cost effective on site preparation projects and is popular with both ecologists and developers.
At the conclusion of our contract, we have got the site to the stage where Lioncourt can now start their surveys in preparation for development work to commence.
