Queries, Did I miss something? Who said it children?

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Surely the shoddy building contractors should of arranged security around the site, as far as I know there isn't any.
Too many laws...
Too few examples...

Was it necessary, in all the years it was there? Before construction began.
Maybe it was nothing to do with children or construction, it was to do with publicity.

I personally knew it was there, when I was kid finding my way around.

Just an assumption from observations most evenings and weekends seeing boys play there. I think it's a shame that the tunnels have had to be filled in in such a way too.

Also the builders aren't shoddy - my new home is great! The plans on site have all been built to specifications agreed during planning permission stage .... it is not the developers 'fault' that some things haven't been preserved as well as you may have wanted them to have been. It would have been agreed when the land was sold.

The statue and little copse area was preserved, the graveyard preserved. And the chapel/church building. Not sure what else could have been as I obviously didn't know it any other way. But it's sad to see the developers get the stick for it when I have a great new home in a lovely, mostly friendly, village!

Good luck with your new home, personally I wouldn't of purchased one after the developer's aggressive approach and constructed by mainly Eastern European workers drinking cheap strong lager every morning & afternoon in Hampden Road!

What is the relevance of the construction workers' nationalities?

Hi Newbie08, I'm so pleased you love your house, a friend of a friend has moved up there too and I went to have a look about, I thought it was very pleasant and it's prime location right in the heart of the village too! Welcome and I hope you'll be very happy here indeed.

There were few if any local construction workers used on this site. They were recruited abroad by an agency direct. I am sure they have done a good job. But the developers promised local jobs and I know that none were used.

What is the relevance of the fact that they were drinking "cheap strong lager every morning and afternoon in Hampden Road"?
The guys probably put in a hard day's graft which is the reason why they got the jobs rather than other wasters who feel they are owed something. If they want a beer together then fair play.
I actually have a strong preference for Eastern Europeans when I have requirements to be met.
