Hi

I spoke to manager at gym this morning.

There would appear to be further delays and no date has been given to repair these fire doors to ensure they can shut correctly and are fit for purpose.

Please give update of current situation and give date for doors to be repaired.

Thanks

Thank you for your e-mail today.

I asked the Head of Operations to attend Eastwood Park to get a response to your concerns.

East Renfrewshire Council Property and Technical Services have ordered the replacement of all the hinges, closers etc. on the door. To receive the appropriate ironmongery this will take until the middle of next week – this has all been ordered.

This was discussed with the maintenance officer today and investigated if a temp fix could be found so the contractor is on site at the moment and the Head of Operations has discussed this matter with him.

One door was unable to close fully as the door closure mechanism had failed, whilst the other door was getting stuck on the door stopper which had been bent out of shape and caused the door to stick open when it had been fully pushed back into the stopper.

They have resolved the latter and hope to resolve the former today to provide a temporary fix until the full fix can be completed.

There is no compromising of the fire evacuation route.

The “keep closed” signage is about fire compartmentalisation (especially when building is un-occupied) and whilst there is a slight issue, the risk is slight and the overnight lock up processes ensure the integrity of the building remains secure.

I do hope that this answers your points around the safety of the fire doors and of the evacuation procedures should there be a fire.

Subject: Eastwood Park consultation work being carried out by Peter Brett Associates LLP - Progress?

Hi

As there is considerable public interest in this matter, would appreciate if you would give an update on the Eastwood Park consultation work being carried out by Peter Brett Associates LLP -

'Master Planning of Eastwood Park' and 'the feasibility of a new build leisure centre within Eastwood Park'.

Please give details of what progress has been made and what documents have been provided/received(*see below).

Please give date when report will be presented to Council.

A prompt reply will be appreciated.


* From the revised Project Plan -
28 January 2019 - Start
25 February 2019 - Visioning Report Draft
18 March 2019 - Visioning Report Final
1 April 2019 - Masterplan Draft
22 April 2019 - Masterplan Final
22 April 2019 - Action Plan / Road Map


The outputs for the project will include the following:

a. A Visioning report for the Campus – which outlines proof on concept – present & future uses, landscaping (hard & soft) and building enhancement potential.

b. Masterplan layout options for the site & presentation

c. Action plans/implementation road map/phasing with cost implications

d. Access and Transport review (including junction modelling & case for 2nd access and improved connections)

e. Community Benefits - details of how the new buildings will derive benefits for the Council and the wider community.

To enable delivery of above, PBA will utilise their multi-disciplinary team to provide planning, transport and economic inputs to the study. This will be supplemented by Stallan Brand architects who will bring their significant architectural experience to assist in the design and visualisation of the masterplan options and the preparation of the visioning report and 3D images.

Thanks

Director of Environment Andrew Cahill is stalling.............

Even although there is great public interest regarding this matter -

a simple request for information and update (see previous post)has been turned into a Freedom of Information request.

The Director of Environment has a maximum of 20 working days to respond.

This is a maximum.....they should endeavour to respond reasonably within the 20 working days.

However, most of the time they use the 20 working days as the minimum before responding !

Any response will be posted.
