Holwell Road, Pirton
North Home Counties
Construction works are now well underway on the development of 78 homes in Pirton and are set to launch our showhomes on 20th April. We started work on site in July 2018 and anticipate that our build programme will take just under two years to complete, with a scheduled completion date of December 2020.
Since July last year we have been busy clearing the site, ready for the construction of homes and so far have:
- Stripped the site, including trimming back of hedges, removal of topsoil, and general clearance and removal of rubbish.
- Completed works to the main spine road leading into the site.
- Completed around 75% of the foundations.
- Started second fixing on plots 81 and 82 (our showhomes).
We have also now appointed Houlihans as CALA’s Principle Contractor and works to the front of the site on Holwell Road are due to start soon.
Highway works: While these works are underway, the road will be closed for vehicular access from Holwell to Pirton. The closure will last approximately 16 weeks from early April, while we make the highway improvements agreed as part of our planning permission.
Exact timings and further information will be communicated to local residents directly once we have the necessary license from the local authority. This webpage will also be kept up to date.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time and would like to reassure you that we will do all we can to minimise the disruption.
It is also our intention to form two holding bays for delivery lorries to access the site, either side of Holwell village, and two traffic marshals will be appointed to manage congestion.
While we understand that this road closure may cause considerable disruption for local residents, the works being undertaken will have long-terms benefits, substantially improving the forward visibility and highway safety for all road users, and we thank you for your patience while we make these vital improvements.
Deliveries: It is CALA’s intention to minimise any disruption or inconvenience to the local community. Throughout construction, CALA will operate restricted delivery times, with deliveries only being accepted between the hours of 09:30am to 15:00 on weekdays, unless completely unavoidable. Due to the nature of the local roads, CALA Homes will wherever possible restrict deliveries to rigid vehicles and only allow articulated vehicles with prior consent.
Considerate Constructors Scheme: CALA homes is part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. As a partner of the scheme, CALA vows to “care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value our workforce.” Find out more about the scheme by visiting: https://www.ccscheme.org.uk/
Further information will be shared on this webpage, once timings have been finalised, so please visit the webpage again for further news on upcoming works.
