We are currently experiencing a period of colder and wetter weather than normal for the time of year. The central boiler plant has been taken off line to allow for essential scheduled maintenance including replacement of the chimneys.
This means it is, unfortunately, not possible simply to turn the boilers back on.
The Department of Estates do hold a small supply of temporary electrical heaters. In situations where individuals are adversely affected by the cold, a request should be made via the Green Button.
Estates will make appropriate recommendations and endeavour to provide additional heating subject to availability.
