Report of the Markets Director.
The Committee noted a report of the Markets Director regarding the Markets Business Plan Update Period 2 2021/22 (August-November).
Once the Energy Team from City Surveyors had concluded their meetings with high energy users at the market, the Chairman asked if their findings could be presented to a future meeting of the Committee.
The Condition Survey for the roof at New Spitalfields had been conducted using a drone, which had highlighted some water ingress. An intrusive survey would now be undertaken with any repairs covered by the 10-year plan.
Officers were compiling statistics which demonstrated the Market’s good work in reducing waste to landfill, and this would be passed to the Comms Team.
Although Smithfield Occupancy is at 100%, there would be lettable space once the Poultry Market roof is completed.
RESOLVED - That the report be noted.
