SBC is refurbishing garage blocks across the town to build resilience against climate change.


Poorly maintained buildings or structures can be vulnerable to climate change. The extreme weather, such as prolonged heatwaves, intense rainfall, or storm, can accelerate the deterioration of those unmaintained structures and increase the risk of severe damages.

Since 2018, the council has been refurbishing/rebuilding garage blocks across the town to improve the standard and build in climate resilience. The work carried out varies from block to block but the main elements that may be included in the work include

  • Roofs
  • Removal of asbestos
  • Structural repairs and alterations
  • Garage doors
  • External redecoration
  • Concrete hard standings
  • Solar lighting
  • New builds (where necessary)
