Building structure safety of Mansfield Court

Reported via desktop anonymously at 14:10, Monday 29 March 2021

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

This is a public health & safety issue. Walls of the building & entire structure neglected, in poor condition, with large pieces of concrete on the verge of falling off the building onto pedestrians. If you do not take this seriously, a dramatic accident could happen. Something needs to be done to ensure the public and Mansfield Court's residents' safety. The Hackney council surveyors have known about this since at least 11 July 2017. An email regarding this was also sent in May 2020 to the Hackney Building Control team & councillor. Received no answer and hoping this online "report your problem" will flag this up as urgent. Thanks

  • The condition of the building continues to deteriorate but the Hackney surveyor claims the external walls and leaky roof of the building do not cause the mould growth inside multiple properties. This is irresponsible and reckless. So far only a few small shoddy fixes have been done to cover up the damage instead of treating the source of the issue. It's visibly very clear that this building is a Water Damaged Building from years of neglect and it is a health and safety issue.

  • The condition of this Water Damaged Building is already impacting my health and the health of other residents. This building is like a sponge, every time it rains, it absorbs a lot of rain water and releases it inside the properties creating roof leaks, damp and mould. According to the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS), Mould is a category 1 risk to health. This is the same category as Asbestos. Is the council going to wait until the building is so water damaged that it collapses like with the recent Miami building collapse?
