Update on work at The Bell

The clerk has recently received an email from the building contractors:

I have recently been in correspondence with Suffolk Highways concerning the scaffolding/traffic lights at the above and they have asked me to give the parish council an update as I suspect you may have had some calls and been wondering why no works are taking place.We recently met with our client, conservation officer and building control.

The outcome from the meeting was,

  • The structure was unsafe and at risk of collapse and we have stopped that by erecting a structural scaffold.
  • As we have erected the scaffold it is no longer dangerous and we will need to apply for listed building consent.
  • I have been instructed to submit a listed building application which will be submitted next week.
  • The Local Authority then have a minimum of eight weeks to determine the application.
  • Once/when listed building consent gets approval we will advise further.
  • It is anticipated that due to the extent of the works they will take 4-6 weeks to complete.

I can appreciate that this is inconvenient and we will do all we can with our client to expediate the works

Any questions just let me know
