Report of Director of Markets and Consumer Protection
The Committee considered a report of Director of Markets and Consumer Protection providing an overview of the maintenance arrangements at Smithfield, New Spitalfields and Billingsgate Markets.
Officers reported that full building surveys would be undertaken and a report from Internal Audit would be presented to the Committee in March 2021.
A Member was concerned that there appeared to be no urgency in completing surveys and concerns were also raised regarding the potential for apportioning blame. Officers stated that the tender process for appointing surveyors to carry out the building audit had taken some time because of the nature of Col requirements. It was also expected the Internal Audit would clarify responsibilities so prevent apportionment of blame and highlight risk ownership.
That the report be noted.
