Latest Project News

5th December 2018 - The Invitation To Tender Pack (ITT) was presented to Bishton Community Councillors.

6th December 2018 - An ITT document review meeting held to finalise the document ready for publishing.

13th December 2018 - The ITT Pack published.

14th January 2019 - Bishton Community Council website updated with dedicated project area (including online access to tender documentation).

19th March 2019 - The ITT resulted in only 1 tender which was declined because it exceeded our available budget. We continue to seek a   contractor to take on the project as a whole. However, as a number of smaller, local firms have expressed interest in carrying out part of the works, we are also making plans to tender the project as smaller packages e.g. sewage & foundations, walls, roof steelwork & tiles, plumbing & electric. This would increase the involvement of the Project Team but still achieve a timely completion of the project.

 July 2019 - The Council have engaged a single contractor to take on the construction of the project. It is estimated to last for 4-6 month. There may be some unavoidable construction noise during this period and some disruption to the use of the centre. For more information please read here.
