BOREHOLES/EXPLORATION ON CHUDLEIGH KNIGHTON HEATH

The work will start on Monday 2nd September and will finish by 30th November.  The boreholes are for exploration purposes to establish the depth of clay and its quality - whilst there will always be an option to quarry, this is not envisaged in the next 10/15 years. Bridleways and footpaths will not be closed and there will be little disturbance to the heath.

If you have some suitable land, please contact Helen Reynolds (Clerk) at clerk@hennockpc.org.uk or telephone 07841 215606.
