Move it or lose it
Clutter and rubbish left in communal areas can block escape routes, hinder the work of the emergency services and potentially cost lives. So please don’t leave personal belongings such as buggies, bikes or furniture in walkways, stairwells or entrances. We will sticker and remove any items left unlawfully, and you will have to pay a fee to recover your item. You can leave bulky items next to the bin area but please ensure they do not block access to the bins or the fire exits.
As well as keeping communal areas clear, it’s also essential that fire doors are kept closed all the time so please don’t wedge or prop them open. If you spot a door that isn’t closing properly, or anything that needs fixing such as a broken window or light please report it.
Do you love reading, but find it hard to visit the library to borrow books? If health reasons or a disability mean you spend a lot of your time at home, you can sign up for our FREE home library delivery service. We will drop books to your front door and collect them when you’ve finished. The deliveries are all made on e-bikes, which makes the service kinder to the environment as well as being a convenient, hassle free way to borrow and return library books. To find out more or sign up for the service please email, call 023 8091 5605 or look online.
