Works Begin on Glencoyne Square


By Amy Kinnear, CEO

We’re pleased to bring you an update about the first works on Glencoyne Square.  In August’s issue of The Mead, we included a four-page housing special pull out with a ‘Sewer On The Square’ update on page four.  These works are the diversion of a sewer that needs to be moved from under Glencoyne Square, and the removal of a small area of contamination.  Both need to be done before any construction work can be carried out for the new homes. 

Currently the sewer runs under Glencoyne.  The plan is to fill this sewer in with concrete and divert it to run under the road by Southmead and Henbury Family Practice.  Contractors will be on site in November and work is expected to last until January.   There will be some road and footpath closures during this time.

Thanks for your understanding and apologies for any inconvenience.  Information about these closures will be published on our website, social media, our newsletter, and at Greenway.  A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order will be issued and able to be viewed through the Bristol City Council website.  

This is the first work we will see on Glencoyne for the community led housing project and we’re looking forward to getting started. If you have any questions about the project, do get in touch.
