Queen’s Park Labour Councillors Paul Dimoldenberg, Patricia McAllister and Hamza Taouzzale have called on Westminster Housing Department to take action on long-outstanding repairs on a block in Kilburn Lane. In their letter, Councillors say:
“Please investigate the yellow brick block on Kilburn Lane on the corner of Herries Street. It’s in a sorry state and looks neglected. It’s had double-glazing installed but many of the front doors look as if they are from the 1950s.There are glass panels which let the heat out and generally in poor condition.
Several gardens on the ground floor are full of junk. There is a huge crack in the wall on the ground floor which extends up into the first-floor balcony. The crack looks as if was poorly repaired at some point but has opened up again. It also looked very wet. The crack extending into the concrete balcony is worrying. On the first floor, there is a large puddle of water extending right across the balcony for several yards.”
