Council Reveals Plans For Old School Demolition

old school carn thomas 2014Local artists could be brought in to improve the appearance of the hoardings that will be used to screen the old secondary school site at Carn Thomas when it’s demolished later this year.

The Council announced in June that it would be using money raised from the sale of a property it owned in Sallyport to fund the clearance of the two main buildings on the site.

In the Council plans, consultants Stride Treglown say that 8ft high wooden panels will need to be erected around the front of the property bordering the road to reduce noise, dust and protect trees.

Part of the existing stone walls will also be retained.

And they say there’ll be an opportunity for the community to enhance the surrounding boards “with suitable designs.”

The barriers could be in place for some time, because they’ll be used to secure the area and allow concrete and other recyclable building materials to be stored until they can be reused.

The plans don’t state where other waste will be disposed of. The Council stopped accepting building rubble at the Moorwell refuse site earlier this month.

The consultants say any asbestos on the site will need to be stripped out and disposed of before larger equipment is brought in to remove the bulk of the structure.

The plan is expected to go before councillors in September.
