Investigatory work on the demolition of Shaw Baths is now taking place.
The demolition of the building is expected to start in January 2016.
I am sure many of you will agree with me when I say that it will be a sad day to see this building, which has been part of our heritage since it was built in 1899, no longer present in Shaw and Crompton.
Demolition – Provisional Timetable:
|Asbestos Survey||08/10/15 – 09/10/15|
|Asbestos Removal||12/10/15 – 11/11/15|
|Planning Application submitted||12/10/15 or 13/10/15|
|Demolition of Building (approx. 10 weeks)||04/01/16 – 14/03/16|
The site compound is shown edged blue below.
The red hatching shows the part of the road that will have a temporary closure on it for the duration of the demolition (this part of the road does not have any impact on any of the current car parking spaces).
The closure and site compound will enable safe working and give the contractors and their equipment space to manoeuvre.
Access to the site will be from High Street and the site compound.
