Latest update on the new build 22/07/2020:
You will be aware that, earlier this year, we started building new move-on accommodation at our Romford branch. The scheme will give young people the chance to rent their own home at an affordable price and is part of a range of much-needed housing the Mayor of London has helped deliver. The build will comprise of 39 self-contained one bedroom flats in a new three storey building, on our existing site at 29 Rush Green Road.
Whilst some of the construction works had to stop during lockdown, the flats, or units, are constructed off-site, and this work was able to continue. We are now approaching the next phase of the build, which will see the first units delivered to site, ready for installation.
We are expecting lorries to deliver units to site on 13th, 20th and 27th July. While these dates are confirmed we wanted to make you aware that this may be subject to change at short notice, as we have to abide by any transportation restrictions and weather conditions permitting. Up to date information will be available on our website at www.ymcatg.org.
Due to restrictions imposed around motorway traffic, we have to accept the deliveries after 6pm. This means that lorries will bring units to site between 7pm and 11pm. However, aside from the noise of the vehicle engines, and reversing notification, there will be no other noise. The units will not be removed from the vehicles until the morning, and the lorries will leave during the day too.
We will do our best to limit any noise during these times to keep any disturbance to a minimum.
We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we develop services to help support local people when they really need it.
