Please be advised that due to recent weather conditions our contractors have encountered issues on site and unfortunately there has been a delay in opening the new Customer Services in Marple.

Due to the ongoing work on site, there are access issues for both our teams to service the facilities, and our customers to safely access the building, as a result we will not be able to open the facilities until after the works are finished.

We estimate the works to be completed in the next 6 weeks and we’re hoping for the customer service facilities to be open in March.

An update will be provided as soon as we have an opening date.

The new Customer Services in Marple are set to be complete next month, however due to the site still being an active building site, with customers and contractors unable to access it safely, the services will remain closed until the whole development is complete.

It is anticipated that the third party will be complete early next year, and a further update will be provided in January 2024.

Works continue to progress well in to the new Customer Services at Marple. Whilst the third party contractors have suffered some delays due to the recent adverse weather, the building is near on completion and are now completing works to the grounds and services.

A further update will be provided in November.

Works continue to progress well in to the new Customer Services at Marple. The building is now almost finished, and we await confirmation of when the external service connections will be completed and handed back over to the Trust.

An alternative skip has been placed on the wharf by Bridge 15B, just north of Lock 1 on the Marple Flight.

A further update will be provided in September.

Work is progressing well for the Customer Service Facilities at Marple, the structure of the building is nearing completion, and our developer is currently finalising their programme for completing the internal fixtures.

Further discussions are taking place to look at access to the services to allow boaters to access the facilities before the housing development is completed.

In the meantime, an alternative skip is located on the wharf by Bridge 15B, just north of Lock 1 on the Marple Flight.

An update on progress will be provided in August.
