Concierge and Barbican Estate Office Service Update

Assistant Director, Barbican and Property Services to be heard in respect of arranging a Special Meeting of the Barbican Residential Committee (BRC) to consider this matter.


The Assistant Director was heard and advised that a Special Meeting would be convened, before the September cycle of RCC/ BRC meetings, in order to consider this further.  Members noted that there would be an independent review of the structure of the Estate Office in terms of staff, processes and procedures, ahead of a proposal to the BRC, and an early draft of the report would be shared with the Chairs and Deputy Chairs at the end of this week.  The Assistant Director estimated that the meeting would take place in the next 4-6 weeks, noting the City of London Corporation’s recess period from 25th July to 5th September 2022 when only essential meetings are permitted.  The Assistant Director noted comments about the last round of consultations being out of sync and confirmed that consultation with the respective chairs and residents would take place first before the project moves forward.
