Housing Management and Estate Management issues

Residents reported problems including the CCTV camera at Sherwin which was not in working order: Blythe House residents expressed concern about noise nuisance.  It was agreed to contact the RSM to establish the schedule for cleaning/disinfecting refuse containers.  Sonia Reid, member of the Resident Assurance Committee, confirmed that a review of ASB policy and practice had been undertaken recently and enforcement was expected to be more effective/rigorous.

Proposals from HSH management for enforcement of parking conditions on Kennington Park Estate

Consultation information had been issued to all residents in July shortly before the TA meeting with a closing date for responses of the day following the TA meeting.  Residents discussed the consultation material at length and agreed there was not enough detailed information provided to enable residents to reach a decision about which option might be the most effective and/or best value for money.  It was agreed unanimously to return the voting forms to the Housing Office with a comment to the effect that it was not possible to vote in the absence of critical, detailed information in relation to the implications of each of the options proposed.  It was also agreed the TA was to write to HSH management on behalf of residents to request the consultation information be redrafted and to request arrangements be made for consultation meetings to give residents the opportunity to share concerns and to ask questions and seek clarification from HSH management.
