Following concerns expressed to me by residents living in Sandy Lane, regarding the Booths Lane developement I have spoken with representatives from the developer and this is the latest information.
“Taylor Wimpey has reinforced the working hours with its contractors by telephone and email today, to ensure they are working as per the approved construction management plans. For your reference the approved construction management plan states working times are from 7.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to
1pm on Saturday. No working shall take place on Sunday or Bank Holidays.
They have had to temporarily close the vehicular access to the site from Booths Lane in order to install new drainage and reconstruct the road as per the approved planning layout. They have now applied for and received permission from Birmingham City Council for a temporary permit to access the development off Sandy Lane further down from the main junction whilst this work is carried out. They sincerely apologise if this was not communicated to the local residents.
The works to this section of road will be completed by 28th October with They will still maintain the dropped crossing access from Sandy Lane for access to our Temporary Sales outlet, but access will be for visiting cars only.”
I have asked that they do more to communicate with local residents to help resolve issues as quickly as possible.
If your have any concerns please email me Keith.Linnecor@birmingham.gov.uk
