Lifts at Mitchell Hey

UPDATE (Tuesday 6th February, 16:30): we are pleased to report that one of the lifts at Mitchell Hey is now operational. Thank you to residents for their patience and apologies again for the inconvenience.

Over the weekend there was a fire in a flat in Mitchell Hey, College Bank. The fire was contained within the flat of origin and quickly put out, and thankfully no-one was hurt.

Unfortunately, during fire fighting operations a considerable amount of water entered the lift shafts. Due to water damage, the lifts at Mitchell Hey are currently not working. Our team are working as quickly as they can alongside our lift contractor to get the lifts back into operation, and we’re very sorry for the inconvenience. We have been contacting residents to keep them updated, and providing support to those residents who are unable to get out using the stairs.

If you live in Mitchell Hey and need any additional assistance, please contact our Rochdale North team on north@rbh.org.uk or by freephone 0800 027 7769 (option 6).
