Tinkers Green demolition works to start

The demolition of the maisonettes and shops at Tinkers Green is now underway.

Work to demolish the blocks at Hastings Close started on Monday March 6 and is expected to take 12 weeks. This will be followed by the second phase, which will see the demolition of Cottage Walk, Saxon Close, Linthouse Walk and Stonehill Walk. This phase is expected to take 14 weeks to complete.

The demolition works are being carried out by City Demolition Contractors and will by mechanical demolition, rather than detonation.

During the works, the demolition site areas will be secured by temporary fencing, and various safety and information signage will also be displayed around the site boundaries. Operatives will safely manage deliveries and access, and will also assist the public in directing them safely around the sites.

Cllr Steve Claymore, Cabinet member for Regeneration, said: “I am delighted to see the work starting on this site, allowing Tamworth Borough Council to deliver much-needed housing.

“The regeneration of Tinkers Green will transform this area for the benefit of the neighbourhood – and for Tamworth as a whole.

“As residents will understand, there will be some disruption during the demolition works and ask them to bear with us while the demolition and construction is carried out.”

All residents living close to Tinkers Green have been informed of the works by letter. Anyone with questions about the regeneration project is asked to contact the Housing Conditions and Supply Team on 01827 709709 or by email housingconditions@tamworth.gov.uk.
