Council are pleased to confirm, that the Listed Building Planning application for repair and renovation works on the War Memorial has been approved by Monmouthshire County Council. The County Council have also approved the sample of stone and lime mortar to be used during the works, and the Community Council have therefore given the go ahead to the company commissioned to undertake the repairs to make a start.
Works will commence in the Square on 15th July 2019, and it is anticipated that they will take no longer than 3 weeks to complete.
The Square will be partially closed for the duration of the work, but there will still be 'through' traffic, and pedestrian access, and businesses will be open as usual.
Councillors apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to members of the public, residents of the Square and businesses, but are sure that you all appreciated that this work has to be done, and cannot be delayed any longer.
