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.”

    “We have recently been made aware of lift breakdowns at Doneraile House and Victoria House on the Ebury Bridge Estate and our contractors have attended promptly to ensure the lifts are returned to service for our residents.

    “We would like to assure our residents that the lifts are regularly maintained and checked by our contractors on a monthly basis. As we discuss with residents future plans for the estate we will continue the ongoing monitoring and maintenance of lifts. We are also in discussion with both Westminster City Council and our lift contractors about lift renewals across our blocks.

    “In the event of a faulty lift, we would encourage our residents to immediately notify us via our customer services on 0800 358 3783.”
