6. When is the redevelopment scheduled to begin and what is the overall timetable?
Following the receipt of planning approval for the demolition and infrastructure and Listed Building Consent on 24 March 2021, demolition of all of the buildings is now complete. This work was run concurrently with the procurement process for the selection of a Developer to ensure the infrastructure works can be programmed around ecology seasons, i.e. avoiding the main bat activity season for demolition of key buildings and the timing of when works can be done in the river. This will enable the Council to offer the developer a cleared site and will minimise the periods of time when nothing is happening on site. St Modwen Homes will be firming up their more detailed development programme for the next steps in the redevelopment proposals and this will be shared in due course.
