As residents are aware, over a protracted period, I have raised concerns about the deteriorating state of the former Queen Victoria Works in Brook Street (the rear of the site backs onto Lower Pleasance).
I have recently received further concerns about the security of the site and the very poor condition of it and I raised this again with the planning team at the City Council.
I have now had the following feedback :
"There has not been any recent engagement with the planning authority in respect of this site. I have passed the concerns about site/building safety onto colleagues in Building Standards to look into.
I will also arrange for the current owners to be contacted to ascertain what intentions there are for the site."
I will continue to keep residents updated on this.
