By planning effectively and communicating clearly, the interface with the adjacent housing estate, preserved steam railway and interested public groups was managed without incident and 100% positive feedback.

    I wish to express sincere thanks to you and all your team of managers and the work force for the information provided to Bishops Walk residents and also for the amazing way you are handling the demolition of the woodlands. Be as it may look like at present – but with so little noise and no intrusdion onto Bishops Walk. Thank you all.

    The contractors have done a fantastic job and built what looks certain to become a huge asset for Llangollen. It’s very impressive. The facility has taken shape rapidly over the past few months and it’s important that something on a main route into the town like this looks good – and this certainly does.
