Week 2: What’s Happening?

As we enter the second week of works on Bevington Road, things are starting to take shape!

On Monday the first site cabins will be delivered to form the “site offices” for the contractors to use. Anyone who needs access to the houses or gardens after today will need to sign in at these offices, where the site manager from Benfield & Lockley will be based.

The hoardings will continue to be erected along our Boundary with the Bevington Road footpath and gates will be erected to secure the working area and materials left during the project. Look out for St Anne’s imagery appearing on these hoardings soon!

On Tuesday, scaffolding will start to be erected around Houses 3 to 6. This scaffolding will wrap around all 4 properties from ground floor to roof level and its construction is scheduled to take a total of 6 weeks.

Also on Tuesday afternoon there will be a collection of unwanted/unusable furniture from the Bevington gardens. This is being collected by Raw Workshop – which is a local scheme which will repurpose timber where possible. We hope to work with them more in the future and provide you with more details.

We are also pleased to have also been able to ‘donate’ bed frames to EMMAUS who will be able to benefit from these.

Internal demolition will also begin this week, with a light start — further cabins are still required on-site to accommodate larger numbers of contractors, and these will be delivered in the first week of August. After that, more serious demolition can take place.
