Does cutting trees down at either end of the proposed Poynton bypass indicate that work is to be started or is this the start of a long drawn out survey ?

The great Crested Newt is a threatened species worldwide, with the United Kingdom supporting around 90% of the world population. They are common in the North-West of England but that does not mean that the species is not threatened. That is why so much trouble is taken to protect them and quite rightly so.

Thank you 'tarboat' for clarifying the situation with the newts.

The fact that there is any activity at all regarding the proposed Poynton relief road fills me with optimism :D

I remember it as a filling station when we came to Poynton over 40 years ago and I also seem to remember they had a little dog with only three legs that used to come out as the chap was putting petrol in.. no self service then.
