Blake Tower - Oral Update

Assistant Director, Barbican and Property Services to be heard,


The Assistant Director was heard and advised that the Estate Office was still unable to take over the building.  The Chairman of the BRC was thanked for his intervention and support in this matter.   As the City Corporation is not managing the building,  there are limitations as to how far it can intervene, but Redrow tends to respond quicker to correspondence from the City than from individuals.  Redrow had also responded to recommendations in the Saville’s Survey, which had been instigated by the City.  A recent Fire Brigade Inspection, also instigated by the City, had raised a couple of minor concerns.
