Co-op builder work on schedule for Christmas finish
The contractors at Bridge Road hope to complete building works by Christmas, after which the Co-op will start their fit-out, aiming for a March 2018 opening. Of course, at this time of year, bad weather may extend that timescale.
Nonetheless the really messy work is now over and the basement floor concrete will go in next, creating a useful working platform, and the rate of progress should accelerate.
After comment by the Community Council, the Co-op are reconsidering the location of their satellite dish, which was to have been at the side of the building, beside the Long Steps. Happily it seems they agree with us that this position is not appropriate!
