  • Ref: 347142 Thank you for your report; we have logged this as a fault on our management system. Our current policy is for our contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. All other faults are logged on our management system, for efficiency, these are grouped by area and the date they were reported, and the contractor attends against a programmed of works based on this approach.

  • Both of these units were attended to on the 15 January and left working, we have not received further updates until this report. As these are still out of light I have requested our contractor re-attend to repair (Ref: 350314/350315) Thank you

  • Light number 2 was fixed on 6th feb, but light number 1 still not. This is really important as there is often broken glass on the floor in that area and it is a health and safety risk to ride or walk through it in darkness.
