AGM Meeting

The next AGM of Bailey’s Mill Management Company Ltd is expected to take place on Monday 21st January 2019, from 1230-1430, at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock.  Further details to follow in due time.


As we are still waiting for the 2017-18 accounts to be finalised by our accountant the next AGM will not now take place in November 2018, as indicated at our February 2018 AGM.   We are now looking to arrange this for January/February 2019, details to follow in due time.

Car park Lighting

Lighting has now been restored to the bridge and right-side of the carpark, and some lighting to the left; the fault being identified as water ingress to some light fittings.   All faulty fittings have been disconnected.   Once we are satisfied that the trip fault has been fully identified then we will consider a programme to replace the unlit lights.

Mill Roof

Following recent investigation of the Mill roof due to storm damage we have been advised by the contractor that there is a risk of further tile slippage.   Therefore, the contractor has today been instructed to carry out necessary repair, which will entail some restricted access to the site during the works due to the size of equipment needed.   Further information will be sent out once dates are known.

Fire Alarm

Procheck will be on-site today to further investigate the sensor fault on the third floor.


Following the fallen roof tile by the front door we have now received a quote to supply high level access equipment to allow access to make repairs to the roof following storm damage.   Ensuring a safe roof is our priority, and we are now considering options.

Car park Lighting

Procheck will again be on-site today to further investigate, and hopefully, finally resolve the tripped car park and bridge lighting.   Initial investigation suggests water ingress may be the cause.  Identified failed seals have been resealed, but, the lights have again tripped-out.   We are working to get this fixed asap.

External Handrail

The Handrail and railings to the set of steps to the rear/side of the Mill are being decorated tomorrow morning due to health and safety concerns.

Internal Lighting

Following W&A’s recent site visit, the following failed lights have been instructed to be replaced with LED microwave sensor chrome trim light fittings that are being phased in:

  • X1 light fitting failure 4th floor facing the lift
  • X1 light out 3rd floor by Apt 16 & 17
  • X1 light out 2nd floor by Apt 14

We are currently awaiting a date that the engineer is carrying these out and have also asked that when they attend, they look at the flickering basement light.

Site Visit

Walton & Allen’s Property Manager has attended site today and carried out a walk around inspection of the communal areas and carried out the monthly emergency light test.
