South Chapel Soham – Refurbishment update 26th May 2021
The refurbishment project at the South Chapel has, as with many projects. experienced delay and as a result the project has run beyond its expected completion date.
The repair project has been running two years (since May 2019 when structural defect to the gable end wall was identified during a maintenance audit) and unfortunately as the project enters its final phase for roof re-tiling and re-installation of the rainwater system a significant Health and Safety issue has now been flagged up. Any further programmes of refurbishment works including additional internal remodelling for amenity provisions to bring this building back into community use will be further considerations by the town council and in due course.
Please note that the paired North Chapel is under Trust of the North Chapel Charitable Trust
