  • Council is currently working with the lease holder and will provide more information once these discussions have concluded.
  • The building has been closed to the public for safety reasons and Council is working through options to best secure the site and ensure the surrounding area is safe. There is no immediate risk to people standing nearby the building.
  • There is no current evidence of unreinforced masonry.
