William Hague on site at Anchorwood Bank

Conservative politician the Rt Hon William Hague MP recently visited Anchorwood Bank on the River Taw estuary at Barnstaple, North Devon. As Project Managers for the significant regeneration development our Project Manager Paul Kass (pictured left) met the former Conservative Party Leader and Foreign Secretary on site.

William Hague has been First Secretary of the State and Leader of the House of Commons since 2014 and came to visit Anchorwood Bank (described locally as ‘North Devon’s biggest redevelopment project in a generation’) after being invited by Conservative parliamentary candidate Peter Heaton-Jones (pictured right). Occupying approximately 13 hectares the redevelopment involves the demolition and clearance of the Leaderflush & Shapland factory and includes enabling and infrastructure works for a new foodstore, a riverside public footpath, river flood defence works and new site access with further residential, leisure and retail developments to follow in phase two.

Demolition works commenced in September 2014 and infrastructure works are due to start on site this month.
