Work begins ahead of Keynsham town centre demolition

Councillors David Bellotti and Paul CrossleyCouncil leaders marked the start of demolition work at Keynsham town centre as workmen moved in to start stripping the 1960s buildings of asbestos.

This stage of the project will continue for 12 weeks before work to pull the buildings down begins.

Workers from Willmott Dixon are currently inside the Town Hall.

B&NES Council leader Paul Crossley and Councillor David Bellotti, Cabinet Member for Community Resources, joined representatives from the developer, wielding sledgehammers to officially launch the beginning of the project.

It is hoped the demolition will be complete by March next year when, subject to planning approval later this month, work  can begin on the  town's regeneration.
