Castle Mill

Works at Castle Mill

+ more

Works to the exterior of Castle Mill have been delayed, and are now expected to commence between mid-January 2018 and mid-February 2018. These works are expected to continue for around 2 years. The contractors, Beard, are currently finalising their programme of works, and we should have a confirmed start date from them in early January.  

More information about the nature and expected impact of these works can be found here: Castle Mill Proposed works 2017  (434kb) Information Leaflet  (1,443kb), and information about the proposed phasing schedule and rent reductions can be found here: Castle Mill proposed phasing and rent reductions  (256kb). 

As the works have been delayed, the dates for each phase of works within this document are no longer accurate, however the principles of the rent reductions will still apply to each phase.

An information event held at Castle Mill on 28th November, giving current residents the chance to meet representatives from the contractors, the architectural design team, and the Graduate Accommodation Office, and to ask questions.  Following this, we have put together some FAQs, available here: Works at Castle Mill FAQ's (224kb)

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these works, please do get in touch with Tenant Liaison Officer, Ingrid Keary:  07788301369
