Dorothy House Car Park Extension – Update

Dorothy House Car Park Development

To our Neighbours in Winsley,

We wanted to write to update you on the latest information with regards to the Dorothy House car park development.

The contract for the construction works with our lead contractor, MJ Church, has now been finalised and as such, work will commence in the coming weeks as follows:

  • Mon 3 Sept: MJ Church will be on site to set up their site facilities/offices
  • Mon 3 Sept: Grass on the development site will be cut to ensure adherence to ecological building conditions
  • Tues 4 Sept:MJ Church will commence formal construction works
  • We anticipate that the work will take between 10-12 weeks

All MJ Church employees and contractors will be undertaking a Dorothy House induction prior to any work commencing on the 4 September. During this induction their responsibilities to our local community, our neighbours, our workforce and our patients, their families and carers, will be made clear.

Prior to the formal works commencing, and in order to comply with planning regulations and obligations, Scottish and Southern Electricity (SSE) will replace their utility pole and re-route their cabling from the car park site. This work will take place from 28 August to 31 August and SSE have contracted some of these works to MJ Church. Dorothy House have been advised by SSE that this will require some heavy plant machinery and that works may continue til 9pm on the 30 August.

Our Car Park website will be updated as soon as we have the up-to-date information and plans. In addition, we will be inviting you all to Dorothy House to meet with us, and our technical teams, should you wish to, in September.

Once again I would like to thank you for your continued support and patience during this period. Of course, should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me directly. (Haylie.carr(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)dorothyhpouse-hospice.org.uk)
