June 2023: Ground Works Commence at St Clements
 

Following the completion of the Archaeological Investigation and our breaking ground event in March, we are pleased to confirm that grounds works are underway at the St Clements Development site in Winchester.

 

All pre-commencement conditions have been discharged, services diverted and environmental and highways permits obtained. The closure of Upper Brook Street took effect Mon 26th July following approval from Highways and shall be closed for the duration of the building works until the Medical Centre opens to patients in Summer 2024. Diversions are now in place.

 

Our building contractor Health and Community Construction (HCC) has mobilised welfare cabins, plant and equipment and have set out the site. The existing car park tarmac is being removed in preparation for the commencement of the piling works.

 

In accordance with the planning conditions, a stage 2 watching brief is being undertaken throughout the duration of the ground works.

 

Latest pictures of the site are shown below. For media enquiries, please contact comms@assura.co.uk.

March 2023: Archaeological Investigation is complete!....

We are delighted to have completed the archaeological investigation at the St Clements Development site in Winchester. The investigation was required as part of a pre-commencement condition prior to starting the building works for the new GP surgery.

 

The investigation started on Monday 6th March and was completed on Friday 24th March in accordance with the councils requirements and to their satisfaction.


Whilst undertaking the archaeological dig, a circular medieval well was found in one of three trenches with upright wooden planks forming a lining. The bottom of the well appears to have been at over 2m below ground level at which depth the ground is waterlogged and this has meant the wooden planks have survived in remarkable condition. The contents of the well at its base may also contain very well preserved organic remains, such as wood, leather and plant remains. The findings were reviewed by the County Archaeologist and no further investigation was required. The trial trenches have now been backfilled in preparation for the main building works’.
