  • Thank you for your report, this is logged as a fault on our management system. Currently the temporary policy is for our interim contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. However, when and if additional resources plus materials are available the contractor has started to carry out repairs to the older outstanding faults these will be grouped by areas for efficiency.

  • Thank you for your update, this is on our management system for attendance. Unfortunately 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. We will try to attend as soon as possible.
