All of Zebra’s buildings are old - some older than others. And that is part of what we are. Residents get the opportunity to live in great areas in typical London houses from generally the nineteenth century. But that also means that there are always repairs to be carried out.
At Carleton Road we have a small roof to recover and ongoing repairs, yet to be scheduled, to repair damage caused by nearby trees. The trees have now been removed and we are waiting for the ground to settle down. The building is monitored regularly.
At Sentosa we are carrying out repairs to the roof at the rear where there is damage to the leadwork causing water to get into the building. We’ll also be reducing the size of the trees.
At Impala we are altering the guttering to the front buildings in Chalcot Square and replacing some windows.
At Jerome we’ve moved the laundry room in preparation for renewing the main boilers next year.
Welcome to the sixth Friends of Zebra newsletter. Friends are people who have benefitted from the experience of living in London with us, former Board & staff members, and others who have an interest in what we do. The purpose of our newsletter is to keep you in touch with what we are up to, and to assure you that you still matter to us, even if you are not directly involved anymore. We hope you find it informative, and we would welcome your news & pictures, to be included in future publications, if you would like to send them to us.
FRIDAY 29TH JUNE 2018 7.30-10.00PM
There will be a live jazz band and a superb barbeque (halal and vegetarian options) with refreshments
The General Data Protection Regulation is a timely piece of European legislation that comes into force on 25 May. The premise is that consumers are in charge of their personal data and the consent to use personal data is much more onerous
All breaches will need to be reported to the Information Commissioner's Office within 72 hours (unless the breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the data subject) and there are fines.
Data protection must now be at the heart of decision making within organisations which need to be transparent with individuals about what they are using their data for, how it might be shared, the legal basis for processing their data, and how long it will be kept.
Individuals have the rights to complain about the way in which their data is handled, to be 'forgotten’, to withdraw consent and to have access to their own information.
We have introduced a Privacy Notice for residents and applicants which tell them what data we collect, why we collect it and who we might share it with (and this is essentially limited to contractors who carry out work in your home, government departments and agencies, our regulator and auditors, with utility companies or with other organisations and agencies where we are legally allowed to do so). The Privacy Notice can be found on our website.
We have appointed Heidi as our Data Protection Officer
