Poor maintenance or just don’t care

ppt.pptx

Well, last night when walking back from Alton West to Alton East I noticed a couple of light bulbs not working. So, tonight popped out for a quick walk around the area and noticed that in small area of the estate that there were nine light bulbs out of action, yes, nine!

Four of these were on one building.

To top it off, I tripped on the footpath, though fortunately I kept my balance. I’ll show you where in the photos that have been produced.

Let’s see how long it is before these are addressed.

  • 19th November – Council emailed regarding all of these items.

How long does it take to change a light bulb on the Alton Estate?

ppt.pptx

It was noticed that a light bulb on the side of 2-24 Greatham Walk was not working for some time. So, the Council was notified, and it still is not repaired.

So far, what has happened…….

  • 26th October – sent an email to the Council about the light bulb notifying it that it had not been working for at least two weeks already.
  • 10th November – No reply and the light bulb is still not working. So, sent a follow up email asking about when the light bulb will be changed.
  • 19th November – still no response from the Council and sent another email chaser with a eight other light bulbs out of action.
  • 23rd November – response from Council that replacements have been placed with the electrical contractors
  • 28th November – have emailed the Council when this light (and others) will be repaired
  • 1st December – received an email from the Council stating that electrical contractors are aware of the situation, some of the fittings require complete replacement, the matter is to be expedited.
  • 1st December – having a quick peak at the light on this building it seems it has been repaired.

This is what was required to have ONE light bulb changed through repeated follow ups with the Council.

Is this managing the estate?

So, for those of you that had a guess as to the when the light bulb would be fixed, the closest date selected was 31 November, which appears to the closest, well done!
