Guinness Housing Association has given a full update to my officers about the three major leaks from water pipes underneath the energy centre at Loughborough Park. I recognise the serious impact that this had on residents over a three-week period. Guinness have responded by identifying vulnerable households for additional support; commissioning full independent reviews and paying compensation to those affected. Guinness will keep me updated as the results of the reviews come through, so that lessons learned can be communicated to other partners. I have not been made aware of issues with the lift and entry doors and so please pass on any information you have to my team.
