Power outage at New Mill Quarter - update

Published Friday, 15th January 2021

Following a power outage earlier today at New Mill Quarter, the Council worked to ensure that the developer, Barratts, sent their emergency team to work on the problem this evening. 

All residents who identified themselves as vulnerable were contacted individually to be offered help and supplied with electric heaters. In addition, all vulnerable residents, plus those who requested one, have had a radiator delivered. 

We are pleased to report that the power has now been restored and the Council will be working with Barratts to ensure that the ongoing issues are addressed.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience to residents, especially given the current lockdown restrictions due to COVID and the very cold weather.
