Look Ahead – Q1 2024

As we emerge from the Winter months work at the Gravity site will ramp up and the community will see more activity. This is a welcome sign as the site moves into implementation.

There are now two landowners at the Gravity smart campus and works will be coordinated and activity communicated jointly where possible. This is Gravity (TIG) who secured the Local Development Order remain as one landowner. Other occupiers will be announced in due course.

Planned Site Works

  • The work to recycle concrete from the site and crush it for re-use will continue.
  • Import of recycled aggregate from the Hinkley C connection project will also resume (weather dependent) towards the end of March.
  • Import of aggregate to meet occupier needs as required.
  • TIG contractors will be monitoring the new landscaping on the link road and replacing as necessary.
  • Tree works on site will take place before bird nesting season to prepare for implementation.
  • The campus approach to re-use and recycling seeks to reduce traffic movements.
  • Consultant site visits, ground investigations will also take place.
  • TIG Archaeology investigations will take place on part of the site outside of the original ROF fence, late March / early April for about 12 weeks.

Other matters

  • TIG will continue to be represented locally by Claire Pearce as Director of Planning and Economic Development, Paul Lowndes as Programme Director on site, and Rob Stevens providing communications support. We welcome Stuart Houlet to the Gravity family as Head of Planning for TIG.
  • TIG will continue with its work to replace the leisure facilities currently hosted by the 37 Club.
  • Submissions to Somerset Council and other regulators on planning and technical matters will continue as appropriate.
