The Footbridge over the High Road has now been demolished. The footbridge demolition is a major milestone in the regeneration programme. We would like to thank residents surrounding the centre for their patience, co-operation and apologise for any disruptions these works may have caused. Laindon Place | Newsletter - April 2019

Works update: What to expect in the coming months With the recent demolition of the footbridge and works continuing by the Health Centre, Swan are pleased to be on track to deliver the first Phase of Laindon place in Autumn 2020 including six new retail units.

In the coming months we have the following works planned: •

Soft strip works are ongoing in the vacant shops in the centre. This will be completed once the last few tenants have left, then demolition of the main centre can commence. We expect the demolition of the entire centre to take around 10-12 weeks.

Be part of the modular housing revolution in the UK! Multi Skilled Operatives needed to work on the assembly line building homes in our factory before they are transported to site. Sound interesting?

Enabling works have started at the Landmark site on Burdock Drive with the construction of the new homes due to commence within the next month.

Hoarding around the site is now 90% completed, with the remainder to be completed once the Post Office vacate their unit. The War Memorial has been protected while still allowing public access from the High Road.

Phase 1b works are progressing well with Pile Caps being installed.
