Residents at Sharman Beer Court have welcomed news that work will begin to fix their lift on Monday.

Residents at Sharman Beer Court have welcomed news at work will begin to fix their lift on Monday.

But some expressed disappointment that the works are set to take seven weeks – and that affected residents who cannot use the provided stairlifts will still have to stay in their flats.

Sanctuary Housing, which runs the flats has posted a full schedule of works on the notice board at Sharman Beer Court.

Last week we reported that MP John Howell slammed delays over fixing the lift - which has gone on for months.

Mr Howell, who also writes about the saga in his column for this newspaper, said: “It is totally unacceptable.

“We can’t have this, with people being trapped in their homes.

“We know the reasons behind the delay but those are unacceptable too.”
