16. How will we ensure that redevelopment happens swiftly, once existing tenants vacate and existing buildings are demolished?
There will be strict milestones and deadline dates in the agreement with our development partner to drive delivery but there will still be periods when it seems like nothing is happening on the ground. This is inevitable with any redevelopment of this scale and complexity, whilst planning is sought, contracts are agreed and mobilisation takes place. There are also only certain times of the year when works to the river and on site can take place, due to various species which are present and need to be protected or relocated. Ultimately, the wider economic conditions and property market may impact and cause delays.
