Callisto Court: pushbike and bike lockable storage area
Callisto Court residents have been discussing safety issues concerning the building and car park access at lengths on the Callisto court Facebook group page. A number of pushbikes and more recently a motorbike have been stolen from the building’s car park. As a result, residents have started to lock their pushbikes outside the lift or at the end of corridors within the building. This is not ideal because it can be a H&S hazard in the case of a fire. In addition the main entrance’s door, the door to the car park and to the rubbish rooms, more often than not, end up being left open because the retraction mechanism fails to shut the doors properly. Callisto Court residents feel that Countryside Properties have regrettably failed to provide secure access to the building and a suitable pushbike/bike storage. Therefore, we would like to make the following recommendations. 1. To review the building’s ground floor doors, main entrance, car park and rubbish rooms’ doors, and either install handles were these are missing, or, alternatively ensuring that the locking mechanisms are efficient and will work in the long term. 2. To install a CCTV circuit monitoring both the car park and the building’s entrance. 3. To erect walls or installe a gate around the current pushbike/bike dedicated spaces, and thus changing these into lockable storage areas.
