The construction of the new homes in Hardy Mansions are at an advanced stage and we anticipate that these homes will be ready for occupation before the end of the year, (we will confirm move dates nearer the time).
Building work to the roads and pavements (including new street furniture) will continue over the next few months as the Council and Ardmore Construction Ltd seek to ensure that these works are constructed to adoptable standards.
All drainage and associated works for Phase 1 have now been completed.
In the next few months the hoarding around the current park area will be dismantled, in order to create additional open space and provide for an easier flow of construction traffic.
We have appointed a new contractor, Erith, to demolish the buildings that will create the site for the new homes which will be known as Bond Mansions.
More information about the new building and how construction traffic will be managed will follow in the next issue of Here & Now.
A second contractor will be appointed in the coming months to build the new homes and resident representatives will play an important role in the selection process.
