Our Board will be reviewing our plans for the year April 2016 – March 2017 at its meeting on 23 February and this is your opportunity to tell us your priorities.
The Board will be considering 3 major projects – the re-roofing of Jeannine House, improvements to the heating system at Jerome House enabling residents to have more control over their heating and the installation of new paving and planting at Sentosa. Much will depend upon the cost of these schemes for which, as yet, we don’t have firm prices. We also hope to carry out a number of other minor improvements such as continuing the programme of lighting replacement in common areas and upgrading of laundries (which is actually carried out by the laundry supplier).
If you have any further ideas or priorities – this could be improvements to buildings or services or even the way we run things please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
We are just completing the installation of secure bike storage at Jerome and we’ll let all residents know when it’s accessible. We recently upgraded security at Jerome following a burglary by fitting new door locks to all flats and installing CCTV to cover all entrances and exits.
We are just completing the refurbishment of the common hallways at Sentosa.
We’ve trialled the KeyCom wireless broadband service at Anson and Carleton Roads and it works well. We have completed the cabling of Jerome House and are awaiting the installation of a fibre optic cable. This was originally scheduled for December but we’ve been let down by the contractor and the council who have to carry out work to Glendower Place. We are awaiting a new installation date. As soon as the system is working we’ll let you know what the arrangements are for accessing the new service.
We’re completing the cabling of Sentosa this week and will then move on to Impala in the following week. We should start cabling at Jeannine in February. It is our aspiration that Wireless Broadband will be available to all residents from March/April 2016. Existing tenants will have to make an additional payment to us of £18 per month for the service and new tenants will automatically pay this in with their rent and have immediate access to the service.
