This week I have been in contact with agents for the Cooperative regarding the progress of the redevelopment Rose and Crown site in Thringstone.
The developers had been planning to commence the redevelopment of the building in September but unfortunately in preparing for work to commence the presence of bats were found.
As you probably know bats are a protected species and as such mitigation measures have to be put in place which have to be agreed with Natural England, this clearly can take some weeks.
The developers are working hard to ensure that building work can commence soon and have assured me they hope to do so as soon as a bat licence is awarded.
Obviously I will keep you updated in the coming weeks.
