Further to our recent meeting, I write to confirm my concerns with respect to the construction access arrangements for the above site.
As you are aware, our current proposal requires a construction access to be available from both Church Road and York Road. I can confirm that if both accesses [ Church Road and York Road ] are not available and we are restricted to Church Rd alone then the length of the construction programme for the project would increase a further 6 months and we would incur additional costs in the region of £250,000.
I believe however it would be possible to restrict some traffic movements from York Rd during the construction programme. For example, the majority of the demolition material could be carried away from the site via Church Rd. It should also be noted that once the basement parking for the proposals is established and safe access provided, construction workers vehicles would utilise this area for parking and therefore access would have to come from York Rd.
I trust this clarifies the situation, however should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
