City Quay Re-Carpeting and Re-Decorating Schedule

The Board of Directors is pleased to be able to provide an update on the continuing schedule of re-decoration and re-carpeting of all communal areas within blocks. The new colour scheme and carpeting modernises the look and feel of the blocks and is a significant improvement which will add to both the value and attractiveness of City Quay apartments.

The schedule was drawn up with the following criteria;

  • Immediate Health and Safety Issues 
  • Significant visual damage caused by external seal failure
  • 5 years since last painted (the order being those painted longest time ago first)

All external communal window seals with issues have now been replaced. A monitoring regime is now in place for other communal window seals.

The following Blocks have already been re-painted and re-carpeted prior to lockdown.

  • CQ6 – The block facing the lake at top end with white centre. All floors, wings have been re-painted and re-carpeted.
  • 1 – 8, 42 – 49, 82 – 89, 104 -115, 348 – 355, 134 – 139.

In planning the future schedule, we have continued to apply the criteria set out above. We have had to plan the schedule considering funds available, other priorities for funds and the time for re-painting as set out in the leases being every 5 years. We appreciate leaseholders may want their blocks prioritised but by following the above criteria and the time set out in the lease we are ensuring a fair process. Where funds allow, we will pull forward dates where possible but, in the order, set out below.

For those future dates set out below with just months not specific dates we will be confirming 4 weeks in advance to leaseholders/residents the specific dates that month that the work will be undertaken. Re-carpeting of all blocks will take place 48 hours after painting completes.

The suppliers will be following guidance issued by Her Majesty’s Government during Coronavirus. For those residents with health issues or worries please do contact the Board and we will happily discuss any concerns via

The below is the schedule for all other blocks;
