Work On Site

The demolition of Ludgate House, which sits on Blackfriars Road, is now complete.

The work has been undertaken by specialist contractor McGee.

We are in the process of preparing to commence demolition of Sampson House. Throughout Q4 2018, we will be making preparations that include establishing hoarding and scaffolding and soft stripping the inside of the building. Full demolition is expected to commence from Q1 2019.

We have set up a Community Liaison Group (CLG) for local residents to learn more about the demolition from McGee. The first meeting was held on 24th October – minutes from this meeting can be read here.

The next CLG meeting will be held on 9th January 2019 (6.00pm for a 6.30pm start) at the Better Bankside Community Space, 18 Great Guildford Street. Please email to RSVP.
