BEAMINSTER UPDATE

Beaminster Update
5 October 2018

This is a weekly update to keep residents and the surrounding villages up-to-date with progress on the damaged building in the centre of the town following the raid on the cash point in August.

The Site – update from CG Fry & Sons

  • We have provisional date of 9 October for the site supervisor to attend and set up welfare, signage and carry out works to the safety fencing to ensure that the site is secure ready for attendance.
  • On the 10 October one of our specialist demolition and plant contractors will be attending site (subject to the above being suitable), to carry out the first stage of debris removal from the gable end side of the building.
  • It is provisionally planned for the scaffolding contractors to attend 11, 12, 13 October to construct the initial stage of the crash/protection decking and follow on this by installing it into position for internal propping and additional shoring to be installed. Then we’ll be ready for the internal debris removal works.

Once all shoring and debris removals are completed it will be suitable for access into the building for ourselves, conservation officers and structural engineers to plan the way forward and commence on the reinstatement works. This will then enable us to give a further indication of works required and a better view on timescales.

However, timescales will be dependent upon findings and requirements of the structural engineers and conservation officers.

Traffic management – Update from Dorset County Council

  • Our traffic team manager and community highways officer are looking at what can be done to ease the highways issues in the town.
  • They are regularly checking on signage.
  • Once the supporting scaffolding is in place (by 13 October) we are anticipating that 2-way traffic will then be reinstated on the A3066 and North bound entrance to fleet street reopened.
  • Water filled barriers will be installed to stop people and cars coming out into the live traffic in the square.

Road signs should not be moved… they are for the benefit of road users and need to be seen by them.
