2018/0428/01/LBC | Listed Building Application: External alterations to include replacement roller shutter entrance gates | Central Arcade Grey Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6EG
Reference 2018/0428/01/LBC
Alternative Reference PP-06836150
Application Received Thu 22 Mar 2018
Application Validated Fri 06 Apr 2018
Address Central Arcade Grey Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6EG
Proposal Listed Building Application: External alterations to include replacement roller shutter entrance gates
Status Registered
https://publicaccessapplications.new...=P5ZCT6BSK1I00

From the Design & Access Statement:

The Grainger Street entrance gate is currently stuck in the half open position and repeated and concerted attempts to repair the gate have failed leaving the gate stuck in the part-open position, making the access appear half closed and significantly impacting footfall.

The Market Street and Grey’s Monument entrances are secured by larger gates which require a heavy running bar to be lowered into position when the gates are closed and raised to allow access. In order for the bar to be strong enough to secure the gates, thick iron is used, resulting in an extremely heavy weight. The gates can thus only be opened and closed by an appropriately strong member of staff who nonetheless face the risk of significant injury through accident or misuse. The entrance gates have been highlighted as a risk in a recent health and safety audit. As such replacement portcullis-style gates are proposed.
On NCC Planning Portal on 07/03/19 this in respect of above planning application, with amendment

Images initially hosted on Photobucket with image reduced to appropriate size using method noted in https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showp...55&postcount=1 (flagged up by newcastlepubs in his post https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showp...postcount=1996), using 1024 rather than 800 pix (when using a portrait format picture will be using 768 or 684, being dependent on camera used), to produce an image size similar to what have used in the past

BUT re-input images on 22/05/19 resized with image using Photobucket system to appropriate size, generally 1024 width, (when using a portrait format picture will be using 768 or 684, being dependent on camera used), to produce an image size similar to what have used in the past

A bit of effort with the extra work and especially time needed to resize images following the recently introduced changes to Photobucket system - but may help load up time to view on forum

A development and a heads up. The upper stairs linking City Road to Broad Chare are closed. Mrs NP and I naughtily snuck though this evening and a couple of the front edges of the steps had failed badly. They ve been rotten and on the way out for a while.

Hard to be sure but with quite a few of the other leading edges also being 'rotten' this might be shut for a while as presumably there's a lot of wood needing a chippie to get to work.

Yeah I work in One Trinity and it has been closed for a few weeks now. Those stairs have been a bit ropey for quite some time.

Mrs NP are great fans of that lift .

You re right it is sketchy. We exit on 8th floor and often you press the button on the ground floor and it doesn't move [doors close and re open]. If you press 8 and 9 it does work. I suspect I might be spending the night in there at some point....

That lift must have deteriorated during my many uses walking my dog around All Saint's Churchyard from Melbourne Street!

I remember also once (without pooch) trying to use the Trinity Car Park lift. I got in, then the lift stopped dead halfway up. Doors didnt open despite frantic button pressing. Then it moved down, and doors opened halfway between floors. More frantic flapping and button pressing it eventually spat us out. The stuff of nightmares.
