Report of the City Surveyor
The Committee received a public lift report of the City Surveyor for the period 12/04/22 – 01/05/22. A Member asked for an update on the completion of the redevelopment of Millennium Bridge House, which included a new lift with public access, to be provided outside of the meeting.
In response to a question from a Member regarding the escalators on Wood Street, the City Surveyor confirmed that the escalators in question were not owned or managed by the City Corporation, although there was a public lift managed by the City Corporation at the junction of Wood Street and London Wall. A Member acknowledged that the escalators were managed by the building, but added that they understood that the escalators were supplied as part of a planning condition, and therefore if they were not operational then this became an enforcement matter as the condition was not being met. The City Surveyor advised that they would look into this and respond in writing for circulation to the Committee.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
