Hewick Bridge Closure
Please find attached details received from North Yorkshire County Council on the forthcoming closure of Hewick Bridge.
We have received a number of enquiries about the Cabmen’s Shelter in recent weeks. Following a tender process the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Council resolved to appoint a specialised conservation company to restore the shelter in the summer of 2017.
The shelter was listed in 2009, details of the listing can be found on the link below:
Ripon City Council made a Listed Building works application to the Heritage Team at HBC in late summer.
Our chosen contractor is now working with HBC to agree proposed scope of works to allow the restoration to proceed.
The chosen contractor has a track record in restoring heritage wooden railway carriages.
We hope that works are approved by the HBC Heritage Team in the not too distant future.
Statement dated 5th December 2017
Having received legal advice, Ripon City Council have agreed to pay an invoice relating to a contract that has been formed outside of its financial regulations.
The Council have resolved to self refer to the External Auditor.
No further statements will be made until the External Auditor’s response is received.
