Statement from Nick Higgs
It has been noted that there has been some construction activity on the new UWE Stadium site.
An ecologist has been working on the site for a few weeks now, checking for birds, hedgehogs and small mammals nesting on the site.
He has given the area a clean bill of health, so we have taken this opportunity to clear the undergrowth and vegetation.
This will ensure that when we are ready to start construction, we will not be held up having to wait until the end of the breeding period.
