Churchill Ward Labour Councillors Shamim Talukder and Jason Williams have written to Jonathan Cowie, CEO of CityWest Homes, asking for a review of the lifts on Ebury Bridge Estate following several breakdowns.
In recent weeks there have been issues with lifts in Doneraile House and Victoria House, where there have been a number of breakdowns.
Councillor Jason Williams commented: “I have had a number of reports about lifts breaking down on the estate – including those where residents have been trapped waiting for assistance. Residents need assurances that the lifts are being regularly checked and are in working order.”
He went on to say: “I have also spoken to residents on top floors who have mobility problems who are particularly affected by lifts breaking down.
“It is a cause for concern that no major works have taken place on the estate for 10 years. During the regeneration scheme consultation, it is important that day-to-day maintenance of the estate isn’t neglected.”
