This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition Stevenage Borough Council to repair, paint and make good the balcony and stairway that runs outside the maisonettes above the shops at Roebuck.

Petition update from the council, 18 September 2012

We have looked into the issues you have raised and I can confirm that we will be renewing the doors and frames to the stores and replacing a section of balcony handrail which is missing. We will also be repainting the balustrades, handrails and underside of both staircasesand balcony and treating the fences along both sides of the walkway.

We have a legal duty to consult with the leaseholders in the block about these repairs as they will affect the service charges the leaseholders have to pay. Following the consultation process, which takes approximately three months to complete, we will start the repairs outlined above. We will however replace the missing section of handrail immediately.

We have arranged for a broken window in the empty shop unit to be boarded up and we have instructed the tenant of the cycling shop to reglaze the 15 broken windows at the rear of the shop.

We will let you know when the repairs work will be starting and we will closely manage the work to ensure that it is completed satisfactorily.
