Maintenance of Southgate Library- MEQ

Original Email:

Dear Department,

Now with the new library back open again, is there any chance some maintenance personnel at the council can look to get the green panelling at the font of the library cleaned up? The library does look really gunky at the front and could do with some TLC.

Also the blue gates at the front are crippling and peeling.

Can we look to get those painted too?

Kind Regards,
Cllr. Stephanos Ioannou


Dear Councillor Ioannou,

Thank you for your email. I have contacted the Corporate Maintenance and Construction department and they are going to paint the fence and gates.

Regarding the metal panels above the entrance: we have been advised that it is copper that turned green due to the elements and weather. The Head of Service of CMCT informed us that this is part of the design and it is not supposed to be cleaned off. If they cleaned the panels, they would look worse than they look at the moment.

If you have any further questions, please don`t hesitate to contact me.

Best regards
