6. When is the redevelopment scheduled to begin and what is the overall timetable?
Works will not commence on site for the main redevelopment proposals until the Council’s developer partner has been selected and the planning application for the residential led scheme has been submitted and determined. These works are forecast to start in the summer of 2023 and to continue for a couple of years. A more detailed development programme will be provided once a developer partner has been selected.
However, the Council may need to demolish some or all of the buildings prior to this date and commence the enabling infrastructure works for Phase 1 itself. This is subject to approval of the planning application for all the infrastructure, scheduled to be determined in early 2021. The enabling infrastructure works may commence in Autumn 2021.
