Building work on former car park in Chesil Street
Building work on former car park in Chesil Street
The base of the more southerly of the two tall cranes operating on the site. I was not sure if the shuttering around it was for protection or if it was part of the development. The crane was a Raimondi MRT84 supplied by Bennetts Cranes Ltd. It had a safe working load of 2700 Kg at a 30m radius, or 5000 Kg at an 18m radius. Counter ballast 6612 Kg. Maximum working wind speed 38 MPH.
Development of 'Extra care' homes on Chesil Street
Planners gave the go-ahead to redevelop the former open-air car park on Chesil Street as 52 'extra care' homes for the elderly. The adjacent multi-storey car park is unaffected.

The 15m scheme is jointly funded by the city and county councils, the Homes and Community Agency, and a local benefactor.

The scheme was controversial, with objections from local residents and also from motorists who found the open-air car park more convenient than the multi-storey. But the need for more homes for the elderly was beyond dispute. LinkExternal link
