In this notice, we wish to provide you with a basic update on works relating to the site as at 19 June 2018.

This is as follows;


Blocks A/B – continue removal of asbestos works and clearance of debris.

Block C/E – demolition, asbestos removal and clearance works continuing towards Block F.

Some tenants have been in touch regarding items that may be salvageable. The Project Managers say that if however, during the demolition works the contractors do find any items intact and which appear capable of salvage, they intend to move such items to a safe place and will notify us of the discovery.  By “capable of salvage”, part of what we mean is that items have to be tested to ensure that there is no contamination by asbestos.  It is not our intention to hand back items that cannot be cleaned effectively from any potential asbestos contamination.

The consulting engineer as well as demolition contractor has an agreed plan in place regarding how to treat any items “capable of salvage” and will do their best to recover what they can.

As the demolition works have progressed, the demolitions contractors were instructed to look out for salvageable goods. The only items found to be capable of salvage have been five badly damaged safes as shown in the photographs. All other contents were found to be unrecognisable and in most cases were piles of ash, as shown in the photograph.

If you have already notified us of items that may be salvaged, you do not need to contact us again.  It is highly unlikely that many items will be salvaged.  However, we will get in touch directly should we locate anything that we are made aware of that may relate to you.

We will update our website further on progress in the coming months.
