Site work at Riverside House

Site investigation work being carried out by Homes England has been delayed as a result of some slow drilling progress and a rig breakdown. This means that the work has taken an extra week and should be completed by the end of next week.

Update – 9 January 2024

Homes England have commissioned Tetra Tech to undertake intrusive ground investigations at Riverside House, Leamington Spa. The purpose of this work is to understand the ground composition and to check for any land contamination.

The findings will indicate if there are any measures to be taken through design or remediation that may be required for the future development and inform Homes England’s future planning application.

In order to carry out this work, the contractor needed to undertake vegetation clearance for access and safety. The clearance work is now complete, and the on-site investigation can now begin.
