The majority of the work on the project this year has been going on behind the scenes, so even though updates have been scarce and progress on the museum site itself minimal, we have still made great progress.
The planning permission process is long and requires many criteria to be filled before any kind of work can begin. So to be sure the plans are not rejected, a large amount of time and energy has been spent filling in the paperwork, making the phone calls and ticking all the boxes to allow this project to take off.
The army’s Transport Corps were brought in to assemble the pointwork for use in the yard. This training exercise provided them with valuable experience and was very useful for us.
