Brimscombe Port Redevelopment Update

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.

Traffic management

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

Port Lane.

Car parking

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.

Asbestos

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.
