Enforcement team to visit village rubble eyesore

TRIMLEY: Developers who left an eyesore on a village’s busy street today started to clear it up.

The pile of rubble on High Road, Trimley St Martin, is the remains of a brick garden wall which has had to be demolished to make way for a new visibility splay for a driveway to a new property.

Villagers described the smashed down wall as “a mess” and an eyesore and could not wait to see it cleared up.

Ray Bingham, who co-owns the site with Alan Crossley, said earlier this week the rubble would be removed “within the next two to three weeks”.

They had been looking at the work programme for the site and deciding on their priorities.

Suffolk Coastal Council insisted the wall was taken down as part of plans to build a new bungalow in the rear garden of the existing bungalow opposite Reeve Lodge, and a new garden fence be put up several feet back from the pavement.
