Notices of Motion

Councillor Peter Kendall submitted the following motion –


‘I Peter Kendall would like to call upon the members of Allerdale Full Council and bring to their attention as a notice of motion, the following,


Maryport Town Hall is affected by damp in the walls, which should be dealt with to both protect the health & safety of users of the building, & preserve the structure of an old, important, historic building. In the recent past, fungal growth has had to be removed from internal walls & internal décor is badly damaged. I am concerned that the building is being neglected by Allerdale, which is ignoring its duty of care responsibilities. Whilst the ground floor recently underwent grant funded renovation, it is believed that this was undertaken with no active involvement or advice on the historic damp problems experienced by the building from Allerdale Property Services, & damp areas appear to have just been painted over. Other areas of damp in the building are not been addressed. I move that Council agrees that the issues be resolved as a matter of urgency’.
