Guildhall Yard Refurbishment/replacement of paviours and drainage

Report of the City Surveyor


The Sub-Committee received a Report of the City Surveyor concerning the Guildhall yard.


The City Surveyor informed Members that temporary solutions had been implemented to help mitigate flood risk.


A Member queried whether the Corporation’s insurance would cover flooding to the Guildhall Art Gallery basement, where much of the Corporation’s art collection was stored.


The City Surveyor and the Chamberlain would follow up with the insurance team and update the Sub-Committee in January.


RESOLVED – that the Sub-Committee approved the following:


·         The City Surveyor to engage a Consultant to carry out a survey and detailed design proposal for the paviours and drainage.


·         The City Surveyor to provide detailed options and associated costs by means of a Gateway 3/4 report for members approval.
