Regular readers may remember that our ‘Christmas Card’ showed a long-standing ‘Lift Out of Order’ sign on one of the lifts in Camberley’s Main Square car park.
The lift appears to be still out of order, and we cannot see any evidence that it is being repaired in any way. So, in desperation, we have submitted a Freedom of Information Request to the borough council. This is what it says – we’ll publish what the council tells us in response.
It really ought not to be necessary to submit a FOI request for such matters. A simple explanatory note on the lift door would have been sufficient. But we feel that the borough council’s instinct is always to pull up the council office drawbridge, rather than to communicate simply and openly. As professionals, they ought to know better.
(Talking about communication, there’s NO ‘Out of Order’ sign on the top floor of the car park. Poor punters can stand there and push the ‘Call’ button, but they’ll go nowhere if they do.)
