Site investigation works for new replacement Mynydd Cynffig Primary School 

Arcadis Consulting (UK) Limited will be undertaking site investigation works from 8th to 18th July, for the proposed new replacement Mynydd Cynffig Primary School in Kenfig Hill. The work, on behalf of Bridgend County Borough, will consist of drilling boreholes into the ground at the following locations:

  • Mynydd Cynffig Primary School (junior site);
  • the site formerly used by Pwllygath Allotment Association;
  • the site formerly used by the Air Training Corp; and
  • the children’s play area located adjacent to the junior site.

The borehole areas will be fenced to ensure safety, and once completed, they will be backfilled and restored as closely as possible to their pre-drilled condition.

Ahead of drilling the boreholes, Scott Waste Limited and Wildwood Ecology were on the site formerly used by Pwllygath Allotment Association to ensure the area is prepared for the site investigation.

To facilitate the investigation works, the children’s play area will be closed to the public from the 8th to 11th July.
