Repairs and Maintenance to roofs/balconies following water penetration

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services in respect of repairs and maintenance to roofs/balconies following water penetration.   Members noted that, since their last report, all high-rise surveys had been completed.  The Assistant Director advised that, since it had been necessary to completely renew the roof of Mountjoy House, the leaseholders would not be re-charged for this work. 


In response to a query about a resident who had been very unhappy with the scaffolding on their balcony, the Assistant Director advised that he had been in touch with the resident, but this had been the only solution for the works required.  The Assistant Director was also aware of a similar issue with a resident in Cromwell Tower and would keep in regular contact with both residents.


Members also noted that, as the barrel roofs on Andrewes House were considerably discoloured and affected by pollution, they would be re-assessed once they had been cleaned and, for now, had been marked as ‘urgent’.  The Assistant Director advised that cleaning works would start in the Spring and remedial works completed by Autumn this year. 


RESOLVED, that the report be noted.
