With the completion of the Civic Centre and new housing by the Town Hall, work has begun on the final phase of the project with the redevelopment of Olive Morris House. The former Council offices will be replaced by a new building with 74 flats (40% affordable), which went through the planning process some years ago. Details of the new building are on the Your New Town Hall website.
Work already started in May with surveys of the ground conditions in and around the site to help plan demolition. This involves some drilling and digging.
The developers – Muse – sent nearby residents a letter in recent weeks to alert them of the works and to give some information about next steps. If any residents didn’t receive this letter, let councillors know and we will ensure that you are added to their lists.
Over coming weeks Muse and their consultants GL Hearn will release more information about the demolition works and will arrange a public meeting for residents to meet the team and discuss issues.
The team have provided contact details for questions and for registering interest in the public meetings:
