Urgent decision or just avoiding Debate

On 27 November 2014, Cllr Ruth Rosenau presented an urgent matter to the Cities Cabinet, Cabinet members agreed to her recommendations that, “The Director in consultation with the Assistant Director – Governance to commence legal proceedings against any the party (if so advised and if the Director is satisfied that there is a claim to answer) for breach of contract in relation to works carried out to the Princes Hall relating to the installation of the unsuitable temporary tarpaulin roof sheeting.”

Kier began repair works to the Queens Theatre in November 2012, following a reported theft of lead in April 2012, to this day the work remains incomplete with scaffolding left in place and a supposedly temporary tarpaulin left covering the roof.


This complete lack of care has caused great damage to the building, Cabinet members have finally agreed action needs to be taken as an URGENT decision, “as any delay would  risk of continued deterioration to the building if repairs to the roof structure were not carried out and also because of the risk of injury to visitors as a result of the continued deterioration of the building, particularly given the onset of Winter.” 

Since that URGENT decision still no action has commenced and the Queens Theatre continues to deteriorate, the Council is failing to take legal action against Kier for providing poor roof covering to the Queens Theatre, and so far no Councillor is willing to enforce this issue.
