Update on Brimscombe Port Redevelopment – Demolition Contractor Appointed and
Procurement Process Begins
Stroud District Council has now procured and appointed Haywood Crushing Demolition Ltd
to undertake the demolition of the buildings at Brimscombe Port, the physical start of the
redevelopment of the site.
Demolition work began w/c 25 October 2021 with the site being secured and is
programmed to take 16 weeks. The Listed Mill building will remain and continue to be
occupied by the Council’s commercial tenants together with the Listed Salt House.
We appreciate that local residents may understandably be concerned over the potential
disruption the demolition works for this redevelopment may cause and hence neighbouring
properties have already received a letter detailing the works and will be kept informed as
works progress. We have outlined some key information below.
It should be noted that the Public Right of Way (PRoW) across the site will be closed
during the demolition works, with a diversion in place. Neither vehicles nor pedestrians will
be able to pass through the site until the completion of demolition works in March 2022,
when the PRoW will be reinstated. Vehicles associated with the demolition works will be
routed through the main access into the Port site, and will be prohibited from driving down
Car parking on the Port will remain as it currently is, however, should any issues arise
regarding site security or access, this may be reassessed.
Removal of asbestos will be carried out in accordance with the Health and Safety
Executive (HSE) requirements. Full demolition surveys have already been carried out and
a method statement for the safe removal of asbestos will be submitted to the Planning
Authority for approval prior to any asbestos strip being undertaken.
The next step for the redevelopment of Brimscombe Port has started with the launch of the
process to select a developer to work with the Council to realise the vision for the Port.
The council is following the competitive dialogue procedure under the Public Contracts
Regulations 2015 (the Regulations). The Contracts Notice can be found here for those
wishing to bid.
