Hello,

Following on from Chris's previous update, I thought I would pop on and introduce myself and let you know what to expect over the next couple of weeks.

My name is Gaby Ward, I am the Customer Liaison Officer for MMB working along side Northumbrian Water's Customer Care Manager, Dave Mortemore. We will be conducting the engagement with our customers and posting regular updates on here.

Starting on Monday 8th November 2021 we will be carrying out some investigatory bore holes in the area. The investigation work will take place around our existing sewerage pumping station, adjacent to Crawford Street in Blyth and could take up to two weeks to complete. 

Letters have been delivered to properties adjacent to this area. Please find the letter here which has more information on the work, and includes a plan of the bore hole locations.

In the mean time, please feel free to ask us any questions you may have by leaving a comment below. You can also get in touch via the "contact" link at the top of the page.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Kind Regards,

Gaby

Since our previous updates back in February, we have been working to develop the solution to minimise the risk of flooding in the area. These works have taken longer than anticipated due to the complexities of the sewer network, however we hope to be able to share updated plans of the proposed works soon. At that time, we’d really like to hear your views on this essential work and how we can work with you to minimise any disruption you and your community may experience.

Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good morning,

Following on from Chris’s update, I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I am Sarah Jayne Parvin, Customer Liaison Officer for J N Bentley, and I will take care of all customer enquiries during the project. You will notice I will be blogging on here keeping you up to date with our progress throughout.

We aren’t starting the project until later in the year. Still, we do have some investigation work planned to begin on the 8th February for 10 working days to help us identify underground services in the area. This will consist of five trial pits along Bates Avenue (Crawford Street) within the footpaths and highway. The two situated in the highway, the first one will be approximately outside of 19-21 Bates Avenue and the other to the side of Sheehan Court. I have added below a google map with the approximate locations. The Red ones represent in the highway and blue in the footpath or private land.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask by adding a comment below, or use the ‘contact us’ at the top of the page to email the project team.

Thanks

Sarah

Hi, further to my update in November about the work we plan to undertake to improve the performance of the sewer network, we have completed our ground-level site investigations and now we now need to collect further information. This will involve excavating several trial pits on Crawford Street.

The trial pits are required to locate buried critical services. Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) Our Framework Partners will carry the work out on our behalf in early February and take approximately ten working days to complete.

Those houses that directly face the proposed trial pits will soon receive a letter with further details.

Please be assured that our site teams are adhering to government guidance regarding covid-19. Where the nature of the work does not allow for social distancing, we will ensure the relevant Personal Protective Equipment is worn, and hygiene practices are followed.
