TFL TO START CLEARING SITE FOR FENWICK SOUTH Early October

We are delighted to announce that Transport for London (TfL) and their contractors are now in a position to start works on Fenwick South.

 


FENWICK SOUTH TO START ON SITE

We are pleased to report that Squibb Group will begin work in the next few weeks to clear sites A and B ready for Fenwick South to be built by Mulalley. Fenwick South which is being built by TfL as a part of a section 106 arrangement, will provide 46 new genuinely affordable homes, with construction due to begin in Spring 2019. As we have said previously, this phase will no longer include the rebuilding of the TRA Hall, meaning that it can remain open in its current location for longer.

Upcoming Works: Squibb Group is one of the UK’s leading demolition contractors. They will be on site for 11-14 weeks, removing the former housing office and garages, as well as repairing and reinforcing the retaining wall next to the railway line.

No homes will be demolished as part of this work.

Residents can expect to see activity increase on site from the end of September through to mid December, and completing in the New Year; with heavy vehicles (outside of school run times), workers in hi-vis and some noise at agreed times (8am – 6pm Mon to Fri and Saturdays 8am-1pm). The first three weeks will consist of surveys, fences and hoarding going up to make the site safe, and the installation of a site office for Squibb staff.

From late October through to mid-December, demolition of the former housing office and garages will be carried out to clear the area. This is likely to be the noisiest phase of works and is expected to last for 4-6 weeks. Squibb will endeavour to cause as little disruption as possible and will monitor dust and noise throughout.

 

Access: The cut-through from Cottage Grove to access the playground and Fenwick Hall will be closed off while work is being carried out. Once closed this route will not reopen to the public. Access via Willington Road will remain open. The parking bay on Cottage Grove may be temporarily suspended in mid-October to allow for deliveries – this will be confirmed at the time.

Part of the shared back garden of Cottage Grove (22-44 even) will be secured for the site office and work-site. The flowerbeds will be retained with hoarding going up approximately 5m from the building. Part of the garden wall will have to be removed to allow vehicle access. These residents will be notified directly with 2 weeks notice and precise timings ahead of work taking place.

 

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON FENWICK SOUTH

Squibb’s Senior Site Supervisor will be in charge of the site, Geoff Barley can be contacted on 07736 018 442 for any information, questions, or general help. If any problems occur out-of-hours, you can call Squibb’s 24-hour Liaison Manager, Paul Blanks on 07973 460 849

There will be an exhibition in early 2019 (date t.b.c) reminding residents about the plans for Fenwick South and providing an opportunity to meet the building contractors, Mulalley, ahead of construction works starting on site in Spring 2019.



UPDATE FROM LAMBETH

An update on Vacant Homes:

People will have noticed that some vacant properties are now being made ready for use as temporary accommodation. This means that repairs and redecorating works are being carried out and people on Lambeth’s housing waiting list will be housed in these properties of a temporary basis. The tenancies for these properties are not the same as existing tenants and as such the key guarantees will not apply to these residents.

 

Lambeth Housing Management:

We are aware that people have been visiting the regeneration hub to ask about their ongoing repairs. These need to be directed to Housing Management as they are still responsible for carrying our repairs on Fenwick Estate.
