The residents of Williamsburgh Court should have received letters this week from the Council advising them of the lift renewal programme and the upgrading of the caretakers office. It might not sound like a lot but it will hopefully dramatically improve the lives of the residents in the Court. Both lifts are to be renewed and the programme of works will begin in January of 2007. There will be a temporary shut down of both lifts on the 11th and 12th of December between midnight and 6am for essential works, but after this the contractor will only work on one lift at a time making sure that the alternative lift is fully operational.
Anyone with any questions should contact myself or the Housing and Property Services department in Renfrewshire Council.
I am delighted as the local Councillor that this work is taking place, and I hope that the works do not inconvenience the tenants too much.
