  • Major works - Wimbledon Hall

    Major works - Wimbledon Hall

    Following the results of a recent independent survey we have identified the need to carry out work to the blocks at Wimbledon Hall to maintain the buildings into the future.

    After reviewing the observations receveived during stage one of the process and having spoken with residents at length, we have looked again at the specification of works and will be withdrawing Stage 2 of the section 20 process as a result.

    This means that we will be reviewing the current specification to make sure that the works are necessary in order to maintain the building and that we will continue to talk to you. 

    Once the final specification is agreed we will then re- tender for the works that are required, and then issue a new Stage 2 which will contain tender and cost information.

    A list of FAQs can be found here.
