Residents Asked To Wear High-Vis Jackets In Basement

Residents in a block of flats above a shopping centre in Nottingham have been told they need to wear high-vis jackets when they go into the basement of the building - the area where they are able to dispose of large rubbish items and where they can collect deliveries from.

The property, intu Victoria Centre, has 460 flats and residents are unhappy about the rules, with many asking where the high-vis clothing is going to come from, the Nottingham Post reported.

One resident, Dave Pitt, told the newspaper that he can understand the reasoning and wants to work with intu to solve the issue.

“The complexity of the situation is the problem. I understand why the basement has so many regulations, as they need to check who is down there and it is for our safety,” he stated.

General manager for intu in Nottingham Nigel Wheatley said that the firm is in discussions with Nottingham City Homes about how to manage the issue and stressed that the requirement for high vis to be worn in the basement of the building is down to safety.

“We have a duty of care to ensure that anyone using our service road area is safe,” he stated.

Mr Wheatley also added that they are looking at how to roll this out to all the residents of the building and that includes examining the cost of providing high-vis jackets for residents to use.

£42 million was spent on revamping the intu Victoria Centre, modernising the shopping centre and attracting a host of new retailers and restaurants to the development.
