ANSON ROAD DEVELOPMENT
We’re nearing completion with the last flat hopefully occupied by Easter. The new pay-laundry for both the Anson and Carleton flats will also be operational from just before Easter. There will still be some things to complete - the external repointing and re-painting, the redecoration and re-carpeting of the common hall and the landscaping. We think it looks very nice and is a considerable improvement on the old building.
CARLETON ROAD DEVELOPMENT
The work has now begun. We will be refurbishing the two ground floor flats in the main building (one of which has been used as a laundry but which will close as we open the new laundry over the road at Anson), demolishing the derelict old building at the rear, and constructing two new single storey 2 bed flats.
..arrives officially on Saturday night/Sunday morning 28/29 March when you should turn your clock forward by 1 hour.
Every year we service and check all our gas appliances. We’ve just begun the programme and if you have an appliance including a boiler we’ll be arranging access to service it and carry out a safety check.
Anson Road Development
We are pleased to let you all know that we have welcomed our first residents to the one bedroom flats in the new building at Anson Road. The remainder of the flats will have been let and will be occupied in the coming weeks. The flats are our most modern, benefitting from green roof insulation, a heat recovery system, underfloor heating and fibre optic wi-fi. The building replaces one that was old and problematic to maintain, and provided only four units of accommodation.
We are currently working on finishing the remaining units and completing work on landscaping and new laundry facilities. Our new residents have let us know how pleased they are with the quality of the new flats, and the thought that has gone into fitting them out, making the optimum use of the space.
Work will begin shortly to upgrade the common areas of the main Anson Road building. This will include rationalising and concealing the surface wiring for lights and fire services, new flooring and repainting.
Carleton Road Development
As we complete works in Anson, we will be preparing to move over to the Carleton Road site, where we have planning permission to demolish the old laundry building, and a small part at the rear of the main house, in order to create two new 2 bedroom family flats and a studio unit. We will also be reconfiguring a large studio flat on the ground floor, to provide a one bedroom flat, and creating the first part of a new utility service riser, that will eventually help us to reconfigure the flats on the upper floors.
Fibre Optic Broadband Service at Carleton Road
We have now commissioned our provider to begin installation of the fibre optic broadband service for Carleton Road residents. We will update residents on the progress of this shortly.
