Hotel Demolition

Following reports that the Old Vicarage building was being demolished and the attendance of Parish Councillors, residents and the Police on Sunday the operatives on site have said that they are stripping the roof materials prior to re-roofing.

The point was made to them that Sunday working is prohibited under the Demolition Notice and that this work should not have started until the 24th. The operatives countered by saying that they are not the demolition contractors. Demolition of the buildings has not yet started. They are currently only doing preliminary works that are not covered by the Demolition Notice itself.

We are informing the Borough.

ACTION ON HOTEL SITE FIRES

Following information from the the Parish Council and residents to Streetsmart about the smoking fires lit by the contractors demolishing the Hotel, Environmental Officers have visited the site and have had ‘strong words’ with both the contractors and the owner. Further action may follow.

It is hoped that this will prevent any repeat problems, but if residents have further issues please report them immediately to Streetsmart on the Swindon Borough website and to the Clerk.
