Energy firm were ‘good neighbours’

Have your say

OWNERS of a disused gas site in Spalding have been praised for being good neighbours.

National Grid has been given the thumbs-up for the community-focused approach it took to work on removing the last traces of a large Victorian gas site in Albion Street.

South Holland district council executive member for environmental health Malcolm Chandler has thanked the company for keeping local residents informed while the company dismantled industrial buildings and removed tar left in the ground from the site’s industrial past.

Coun Chandler said: “Because of the scale of work at the site this project had the potential to cause a lot of disruption.

“We were impressed with the way National Grid liaised with the local community and are pleased it recognises the importance of keeping neighbours informed.”

His comments came after National Grid commissioned a survey which showed 90 per cent of respondents saying communication had been “clear and concise”.
