Churchill Ward Labour Councillors call for action on Ebury Bridge Estate lifts


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.”
