9 Fire Risk & Health and Safety Kim Thomas, Health, Safety and Compliance Manager, from JMPM under took a full audit of the Fire Risk and Health & Safety requirements for Gunwharf Quays ensuring that the Safety and Compliance requirements were being met. The basis for this audit was the Risk Assessments that were carried out by Quantum Risk Management in December 2011. This is due for formal review at the end of 2013. We are currently reviewing the FRA and H&S The inspections included all Blocks, underground car parking, powered gates, man safe systems, lightning protection, lifts, electrical installations, water pumps, external walkways and roads under the control of GQRC. The audit was carried out over a 3 month period; we found that the site is broadly compliant and the regular testing of the Emergency lighting, Fire Alarms and Smoke venting systems as well as routine inspections of the site being carried out by the Estate Managers. The records are in good order with repairs being carried out quickly by the Estate staff. With regard to the Health & Safety we have been reviewing the documentation provided by all contractors ensuring they have provided their Risk & Method statements and all insurance documents. We have also reviewed this for the Staff employed by GQRC. The Health & Safety Compliance Manager carries out monthly visits to support the Estate Staff and to carry out routine inspections. 9

19 Questions Mr Atkey Wants to question the rigidity of the rules, and high costs regarding lost parking permits. Guy Osborne What, if anything, has been and/or is going to be paid to the Directors in the way of remuneration for their efforts in running the residents company? What items of capital equipment have been, and are planned to be purchased to aid site operations? What do the directors consider to be an adequate level of reserves (after all we dont want to turn into a bank) What rate of interest have we been getting on these reserves? Have the directors considered slightly more risky, but potentially more lucrative investments? Alan Batt Movers, installers, builders etc. – as well as residents themselves – regularly cause minor damage to the fabric of the building e.g. round door frames, walls. Can this be repaired on a regular basis, rather than just at the planned 3 – 5 year building maintenance time? Mrs Leigh Can the large kerb between the entrance and exit at Anson car park be cut back /narrowed down, as it is difficult to manoeuvre larger cars past this. Roger Shearn a) Why did we, the Blake House residents, receive a letter from Secus [dated 20th November 2013] acting as recovery agents for Scottish Power that contained the threat of disconnection? b) Who is our current communal electricity supplier? c) Do we pay a daily standing charge for electricity supply - if YES - how much? d) What is the current kWh rate we pay? e) Is the current contract for supply subject to an end date? What action will be taken to ensure that 'best available' rates are secured for the residents after that date/ or in the future? Why were telephone costs shown separately this year? Why were postage costs shown separately this year? Debtors amount is shown as £52,523.88. a) How many owners does this represent? b) What is the largest single amount owed? c) Why do JMPM not seek interest on these overdue amounts? When will estimated accounts for 2013/14 be shown? 19
