A number of people have noticed that demolition work seems to have come to a halt in the town centre. No workmen to be seen and their cabins, toilets have been removed.
We contacted the Town Centre Manager for information and he gave the following response:
“This was always planned to be a long term contract however there have been some delays namely:
1) NGN failing to terminate gas supplies in the correct location
2) As anticipated there are complex issues with the way the concrete frame for Churchill House is dismantled and maintaining the structural integrity of the clock tower
The demolition is continuing and the project including the post demolition works should be complete by mid/late October this year.
