Almonry update

Whilst works are progressing well, there have been some delays and the Almonry is now likely to be available for Officers in mid-October.

It is highlighted that the current climate is causing a general delay in provision of supplies and an increase in cost of materials. These will have an unavoidable impact on the project.

The revision to electric heating has resulted in an increase in mains power supply which is reliant on UK Power Networks availability, additional work to the roof has been identified and it is indicated that this is due to the delays in commencement of work and the resultant deterioration of poor quality roof tiles.

Following amendments to the project, works are also being carried out to the driveway and provision of a platform lift. Due to material shortages this may not be completed when the officers return so, to ensure safety, the double gates will only be open on request until the access is fully completed and the platform lift is installed.

Council is conscious of the inconvenience caused by the footpath closure during the works and confirm that East Sussex County Council are content with the measures put in place during the footpath closure. The Contractors are working to remove the hoarding and open the footpath as soon as practicable.
