We will work to minimise impacts during this time. However, there may be machinery noise, temporary restrictions to traffic parking and changes to pedestrian access.
If there is bad weather, our contractors will try to start the work the next day. If unsuitable weather continues, we will update you on any changes to the schedule.

You will still be able to access properties in the street. We will contact you if we need to temporarily restrict access to progress work.

The safety of our communities, residents and staff is our top priority. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it may become necessary to reschedule works at short notice.Thank you for your patience while we complete these important works.
