November 2010

This month has proved interesting on the air quality monitoring front due to bonfire night which skewed the readings! The site team have closely observed these changes to make sure everything is still safe. The coffer dam that separates the lagoons from the river is nearing completion. Other works are all on programme. On the development, emda has entered a planning performance agreement with NEDDC which will help all parties bring forward the site development plan more quickly.
