Zebra Board and Development Committee

 

The Zebra Board and Development Committee meet next week. Zebra is overseen by a Board of management which meets five times a year to review Zebra’s performance and to set its strategic objectives. The Board has appointed a Development Committee to specifically oversee its development programme. The Board is made up of unpaid volunteers with an interest in what Zebra does and with skills which can be brought to bear on Zebra’s activities. It includes two former Zebra residents.

 

 

Whilst the Board and Committee will be reviewing the financial and operational performance of the organisation over the last few months and central to this is always the resident experience, they will also take decisions about the next phase of development at Carleton Road.

Progress with Anson Road Development

Good progress continues. In the main building a new tenant has already moved into the new studio and we’ve let the refurbished flat. We’ve made great progress, too, on the landscaping at the rear in difficult conditions and on the 8 new flats that we’ve built there. We are now beginning to fit out the ground floors - the upper floors being largely complete. We are hoping to have the building largely completed by Christmas.

The new laundry which has bigger machines should be ready by the New Year. Because this is essentially a commercial laundry there will be a charge for its use. The last phase of the Anson development will be the internal decoration of the hall and fitting of a new carpet – also likely to take place in the New Year.

We are now looking at beginning the second phase of the development over the road at Carleton Road in late January 2015. This involves the building of two new flats at the rear of our property and the reconversion of the two ground floor flats in the main house – one of which has been used as the laundry.

We’ve made great progress, too, on the landscaping at the rear in difficult conditions and on the 8 new flats that we’ve built there. The upper storeys are virtually complete and next week we’ll start on the staircases and ground floor furniture installation. We are still hoping to get some of these flats ready and occupied by Christmas.
