Waxwell Lane Car Park Development – Update on planned work on the site.

Development Site

The Pinner Association is being briefed at regular meetings with the Project Manager and Contractor (AMCM) for the development of twenty three storey mews style houses on the site of the now closed Waxwell Lane car park.

We have been informed that the work to strip the old tarmac off the areas of the site to be built upon is to start next week (the week beginning 9th December 2019).  This will involve the movement of two large lorries in and out of the site per day, and these vehicles will approach and leave Waxwell Lane via Bridge Street.

In January the piling work will start for a period of approximately two weeks, and this may cause some noise audible outside the site.  Work will not start before 8 am and will end by 6 pm (Monday to Friday) and 1 pm (Saturday).

When very large equipment is being manoeuvred on and off the site the parking bays outside the Police Station in Waxwell Lane will be temporarily suspended.

The AMCM  have assured us that they will be abiding by the requirements of the “Considerate Constructors Scheme”.

Waxwell Lane Car Park will be permanently shut from the end of October.

The Pinner Association have been informed by Harrow Council that the Waxwell Lane car park will be closing at the end of the month with the main contractor for the building works, to construct twenty mews style town houses, taking ownership of the site with immediate effect.   This will mean that access will be unavailable for any vehicles and persons from 31 October 2019, apart from the contractor’s staff working at the site.

We have been told several times previously that the Waxwell Lane car park was to close, and on each occasion the closure has been delayed.  However, this time it appears that the car park really will shut permanently at the end of this month.

 

Archaeological Dig in Waxwell Lane Car Park.

Some of you might have been wondering this week why large trenches had appeared in Waxwell Lane Car Park.

As part of the planning permission to develop the Car Park, an exploratory dig has been carried out.

For those of you hopping that a distant cousin of Richard III would be uncovered, no such luck!

A few artefacts were recovered but not of great significance.

Members of Pinner Association Committee along with representative from Pinner Local History Society and Pinner Local where given a tour of the site on Wednesday morning by the archaeologist.

Three trenches were dug to a depth of 16” (40cm). The location of the trenches was decided by analysing historic maps.

What we did discover is that there is a lot of clay.

The car park should be back to normal on Monday.
