Working in partnership to deliver a vision for Sudbury

Public information on this webpage will be updated regularly, so please check back for updates.

January 2022

Full construction of the solar carport will start on Wednesday 12 January 2022. Please note that the whole section of the Kingfisher/Station Road site will be closed from this date until construction has been completed. Signage will be displayed to advise car park users.

December 2021

Screw pile anchor site investigations by the subcontractor have been completed. The final baseplate designs are now being manufactured.

Periodic preliminary works will be underway during December. Full construction will start in January 2022.

November 2021

Work will commence on site to install a 40 bay solar carport in the central section of the car park at the Kingfisher/Station Road site.

This will generate electricity on site, linking up to battery storage, to provide some of the energy needs of the leisure centre. Additional electric vehicle charging points will also be installed.

All carport works will be completed by March 2022, at the latest. There will be a six week period sometime between November 2021 and March 2022, when the main structure is erected.

Polysolar, the contractor, will work to minimise the loss of parking spaces during construction. However, some temporary disruption is unavoidable whilst these improvement works take place.
