ERYC have confirmed that the solvent based paints recently used in County Hall should not have been.
“Thank you for bringing the issue of the painting and decorating contractor using solvent based paints to our attention.
At the contract pre-start meeting, the use of solvent based paints was discussed with the contractor. The councils position was that solvent based paints would not be used without the the permission of the contract administrator. In this instance the contractor used them without permission. The contractor has been reprimanded and water based paint is now being used.”
Well done ERYC.
