Many local residents and Councillors have told us how important it is to get on with this site and start building homes as quickly as possible. Subject to achieving planning consent in time, we are hoping to start construction in September 2018.
In the meantime, we are moving ahead with clearing the site and preparing for demolition and the first phase of development.
It is very important for the listed buildings to be properly cared for, as they can deteriorate very quickly. We are halting further unnecessary decay to the listed buildings and carrying out a full environmental clean.
Site clearance work has now started and is due to be completed by Spring 2018 so that the land is ready for redevelopment.
