There is finally some activity at the badly flooded garages at Baly House. A tanker was at the garages this morning draining them. This follows involvement earlier this week from ward councillors and Lambeth Council’s Head of Repairs Operations.
It’s a relief to see the garages being drained at last, as the standing water may have been causing damage to the building, not to mention the unsightly appearance and foul smell.
The cause of the flooding will also need to be dealt with, so that it doesn’t happen again. In addition, the flooding (albeit less severe) in the other garage blocks needs to be sorted out. A resident of the estate (a Lambeth Street Champion) who escalated the matter to the ward councillors will continue to monitor progress.
