Stockpiles cleared from Saxonvale site

STOCKPILES of rubble are being removed from the Saxonvale heritage site in Frome.  

The Saxonvale site.

The works began earlier this month and will continue until late November/early December. 

The majority of materials consist of crushed concrete, which are being loaded by an excavator into eight-wheeled wagons. These wagons are accessing and leaving the site via the Garsdale Road entrance. 

Ahead of the works, the district council said that all lorry movements will take place during normal working hours, between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. 

They said, “There may be some minor disruption to the local road network due to vehicle movements. Apologies in advance go to residents, local businesses and motorists who may find themselves temporarily inconvenienced during the removal works. 

“Those neighbouring Saxonvale can keep up with the project’s progress through a public noticeboard, installed at the site entrance point. The noticeboard displays work schedules, news items, site manager contacts, and essential safety messaging. 

“Balfour Beatty currently have operational control of the site, which is closed to the public due to strict safety measures. Landowners, Mendip District Council, commissioned the contractors to clear the area, ready for construction. The clearance is being funded via Homes England who, recognising the significant social and civic benefits of the Saxonvale scheme, awarded the Council a £4 million grant through the Government’s Local Authority Accelerated Construction (LAAC) programme. 

“The Planning Board has resolved to grant planning consent (subject to the completion of the s.106 agreement), to the Saxonvale scheme. Appointed developers, Acorn Property Group, plan to transform the original manufacturing site into a mixed-use, sustainable neighbourhood. It will feature new cycle and pedestrian paths, a riverside café and park with river walk, and a public square. Sensitive landscaping will ensure historic trees are fully integrated into the design. Saxonvale will create jobs, new homes and business opportunities in the heart of Frome.”

    Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing
