    No, the industrial units on the millingford estate near Lidl.

    They won't know about the tarmac I suspect. I'd be for clearing the soil off that part and asking the Council either to remove the tarmac or treat your plot as a half instead of a whole or a third instead of a half if you follow my drift. Oh and if they do agree to remove the tarmac, get them to deliver some decent top soil
