The survey is designed to gather data and views about the repairs service since it came back in house in October 2018.
It would be particularly helpful if you could pass this link on to your own contacts who may be interested in providing feedback and by sharing on social media.
The objective of this cross party review is to make recommendations to the cabinet to assist in improving the repairs service for everyone who relies on it. If you have any questions about the work of the Housing Scrutiny Commission, please just come back to me.
This year we celebrated 100 Years of Council Homes and in 2020 the Homes (Fit for Habitation) Act will roll out to support all tenants and make sure their homes are fit for habitation – including warm and safe.
We are starting the year by addressing district heating breakdowns. On the 16th January we are running a session with local groups in partnership with Fuel Poverty Action so we can find solutions to district heating breakdowns.
There will be a follow up at our Group Meeting on the 22nd of January.
Are you experiencing district heating breakdowns?! Click here to invite me to your estate between the 6th – 15th January so I can talk to your neighbours over a cuppa ahead of our open session on the 16th January.
We have a few other things up our campaign sleeves in 2020 which I look forward to sharing with you next month. Thank you everyone who has dedicated so much time this year. Many of you have signed postcards, posted through your neighbours letter boxes, spoken at public meetings and helped organise.
Have you got an idea for a business or project that helps other people or the environment (a social enterprise)? Would you like some support to get it up and running? The School for Social Entrepreneurs’ London Fellowship Programme could be right for you. It’s a practical course for people from all backgrounds – no textbooks in sight! You don’t need any educational qualifications and there’s no scary interview process. Find out more: http://bit.ly/32HSuyh
Many thanks to everyone who came along and supported the campaign at the Judicial Review. We had great turn-out – over 40 people – many staying on to hear the case itself. Special thanks to Distriandina for a heartening breakfast!
Now we wait for Justice Dove’s decision, which should be in two or three weeks. In the meantime we must talk about what happens next. Whether we win our lose, there will be much to do, supporting the traders and fighting for an inclusive development that benefits local people.
We are therefore holding a public meeting on Tues 19 November, 7pm, Draper TRA Hall, Hampton Street Junction with Newington Butts
