Scary news reaches us today, that the block of flats known as Princess Court but coined Colditz by locals has had its lifts condemned.
The block of flats had six floors and two lifts with a stairwell, however, disabled people living in the flats are unable to go out for hospital appointments or shopping.
Other residents who are aged or have disabilities are struggling with the stairs,
Both lifts are blocked off with tape.
One poor lady got trapped in a lift as it broke, during a sweltering hot day. the lady herself was Asthmatic and was also very scared whilst she was trapped in the lift.
The fire service has taken the names of all of the residents who cannot exit the block of flats during a fire and will attend to those residents first by lowering them off their balconies.
The owners of the flats have costed new lifts but have (allegedly informed residents that the cost is too high)! We cannot confirm this at this time.
If you know any more please get in touch.
That is awful, these people need to be exposed, this needs to be leaked to the press, people's lives are at risk. If you can get some legal advice Gamlins offer a free clinic. Thank you for your comment Mrs Colwyn BayReplyDelete
Thank you for your comments apparently the Daily Post have been informed but had no interest in the story!Delete
Due to the block being built so long ago, you would have thought that the management company would have set up sufficient funds in their "sinking fund" to cover failure or replacement of the lifts. If anyone is responsible, it is the management company that needs to be taken to court.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your comment, you are spot on, but apparently it was only built in 1990, but the lifts were second hand! These people pay parking and an added fee for cleaning etc which is very expensive, so the owners must be making moneyDelete
The place needs demolishingReplyDelete
I wouldn't go that far. The flats are nice, it's a nice place to live. Just needs the management of communal areas such as lifts, laundry services and communal lounge to be attended to properly.Delete
These carbuncle flats need to be demolishedReplyDelete
Terrible looking block of flatsReplyDelete
