West Way Phase 2 construction begins

Mace’s new construction partner Gilbert Ash start works on phase 2 this week (commencing 28th November).  The early works will involve increasing the site levels using imported stone and the installation of drainage within the site hoarding. Following on from this, they will commence piling / foundation works in the new year for approx. 12 weeks. This will be followed by the commencement of the new concrete frame works. 

The Parish Council has been invited, along with other local groups and organisations, to a Community Liaison Group meeting in the coming weeks to engage with the community during the construction period. Meanwhile Gilbert Ash have produced their first community newsletter that outlines the initial construction activities and introduces members of their team. The newsletter can be read here. 

We will keep you up-to-date as we learn more and when the community liaison group begins to meet. If you have questions you would like to raise in this forum please contact the Clerk or the District Councillors Emily Smith and Debby Hallett.
