E&F Compliance Update

10/11/2022 - E&F Compliance Update

Matter for Decision

The report provided an update on the compliance related activities delivered within the Estates and Facilities Team, including a summary on gas servicing, electrical testing and fire safety work.


Decision of Executive Councillor for Housing

i.       Noted the report


Reason for the Decision

As set out in the Officer’s report.


Any Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

Not applicable.


Scrutiny Considerations

The Committee received a report from the Property Compliance and Risk Manager.


The Property Compliance and Risk Manager said the following in response to Members’ questions:

i.               Confirmed that officers would be in touch with Leaseholders about the Fire Safety Risk Assessment Programme and officers would work with residents if they had a non-compliant fire door.

ii.             Officers were looking at properties which had had adaptions done and had been adding personal risk assessments. 


The Executive Councillor proposed that the recommendation in the report be amended to simply note the report. They requested a meeting with officers to discuss the matter of publishing data on the City Council website rather than in committee reports. This amendment was carried unanimously.


The Committee unanimously resolved to endorse the amended recommendation.


The Executive Councillor approved the recommendation.


Conflicts of Interest Declared by the Executive Councillor (and any Dispensations Granted)

No conflicts of interest were declared by the Executive Councillor.
