CAR PARK ADJACENT TO ST HELENS GRAVEYARD


In accordance with our obligations as owners of this area we commissioned a drainage survey of the existing drains.

The results of the survey included two significant issues, namely;

i. Silting of the drain which was severely impacting flow, this has been addressed and the drain desilted;

ii. A crack in the pipe which we are advised shall need to be repaired to prevent eventual collapse, along with the inconvenience of flooding along with associated costs that may occur.

Accordingly, we shall be undertaking the repairs to the drainage forthwith, inclusive of reinstatement of the existing finishes, though given the carpark is currently subject to pre-application advice we believe it only right to inform you of actions to avoid any confusion.
