CCTV signage by NACD

Dear all residents,

We hope you are well and enjoying the lovely weather. As you know, safety is the prevalent topic all across the UK; this doesn’t just include COVID-19 but also your wellbeing in other facets. It is our responsibility to ensure all the required elements are in place to improve the wellbeing of Chobham Manor.

NACD are erecting CCTV signage outside of each building, above the front entrance door.

The CCTV signage can be very effective for deterring potential criminal activity as it is clear and bright in colour. The signage also necessary for warning honest members of the public that they are being monitored for their own safety and in the interest of crime prevention.

Should you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact your us on ChobhamManor1@lqgroup.org.uk

Many thanks in advance,

Chobham Manor management team

Please let us take this opportunity to clarify all the parking restrictions that currently exist. Please read the following rules and regulations to familiarise yourself with the do’s and don’ts to ensure you do not inconvenience yourself or your neighbours.

 

Under croft car parks – for residents with a valid bay corresponding permit.

These bays consist of both privately owned bays & bays that are allocated to tenants of L&Q. All vehicles parking in these areas must be parked wholly within the confines of a marked bay, fully displaying a valid bay corresponding permit in the windscreen at all times.

 

Above ground numbered bays – for residents with a valid bay corresponding permit.

Generally, these bays consist of private bays legally forming part of a resident’s property. All vehicles parking in these areas must be parked wholly within the confines of a marked bay, fully displaying a valid bay corresponding permit in the windscreen at all times.

 

Should your bay be unavailable for any reason then please find alternative parking. Never park in a bay or area that does not correspond to the permit displayed.

Further information regarding permit parking can be found on PCM’s FAQ page at www.parkingcontrolmanagement.co.uk/faq-permits

 

 

Unnumbered bays on Abercrombie Road & throughout Chobham Manor

These bays are for valid L&Q, Taylor Wimpey & contractor permit holders only – these bays are not to be used by any other users at any time.

 

Roadways / Paved or landscaped areas in and around Chobham Manor (excluding Honour Lea Avenue)

No parking is allowed on any of the above areas throughout Chobham Manor regardless of resident permit display, this includes blue badge parking. All restricted areas are clearly signposted by parking enforcement signage.

 

Loading bays and electric charging point bays

Loading bays are only to be used for the following reasons and time constraints, no permit is required:

To actively load or unload (max stay 30 minutes). These are not for short term parking, once you have finished loading or unloading please find alternative parking.

Electric charging bays are for charging an electric (EV) vehicle between the hours of 10am to 2pm or 5pm to 7am (max stay 3 hours) These are not extra parking bays for EV vehicles. Vehicles parked in these bays must be actively charging at all times.  Once you have charged your vehicle please find alternative parking.

Outside of the above hours between 7am to 10am or 2pm to 5pm you can use these bays to load & unload as above. Both of these bays have a maximum stay & a no return period that is advertised on the signage

 

Disabled bays

Currently there are no disabled bays throughout the Chobham Manor development. Blue badge parking is only available on Honour Lea Avenue parking in accordance with the Blue Badge scheme.

 

Visitor parking

Unfortunately, there is no visitor parking throughout the development. Visitor parking schemes implemented by Newham Council do not apply to Chobham Manor at present.

Visitor parking and un-restricted parking is available at certain times throughout the day on Honour Lea Avenue, currently this is for a max stay of 2hrs for pay by phone users between the hours of 8am to 9pm.

Outside of these hours parking is completely un-restricted.

Alternatively, additional resident or visitor parking can be accessed either at the Velodrome, Westfield Shopping Centre or Stratford International.

Failure to adhere to any of the advertised restrictions around the development will result in PCM issuing a parking charge notice (PCN). This will be a charge of £100.00 reduced to £60.00 if paid within 14 days. Anyone receiving a PCN has the right to appeal or independently appeal. Details regarding this are on the reverse of every notice.

 Parking by L&Q residents when not authorised to do so could be considered a direct breach of your tenancy agreement.

ALL enforced vehicles are photographed beforehand showing the permit or location status. Please do not approach, intimidate nor attempt to discuss a PCN with any parking control operative or a member of the L&Q team, they have no process of cancelling a charge. Any form of harassment could potentially be rendered a criminal offence.

Mobile Crane Placement on Peloton Avenue – Update

Dear residents of Chobham Manor,

We have been notified this morning that there has been a mechanical fault with the crane / cherry picker. We anticipate that works will commence from tomorrow, Tuesday 16th 2020. We apologise on behalf of our crane hire company. We will be sure to inform you of any further updates.

Commencing Tuesday 15th June 2020, Taylor Wimpey will be undertaking some improvements to the terrace drainage systems on all of the terraces to remediate some legacy issues with the block. The works will entail the use of specialist access equipment which will be set up on Peloton Avenue. The safe operation of this equipment dictates the closing of Peloton Avenue between Abercrombie road and Villiers Gardens  (see plan below) during the site working hours (8:30AM – 5:00PM).

There will also be a requirement for suspending parking on the West Side of the street. The exact set up position of the machine will move from South to North as the work progresses throughout the duration of the works. Alternative parking has been arranged for residents who may be effected on Abercrombie Road (please see image below).

The scope of works entails the installation of new rainwater outlets and associated making good works. Majority of the work will be done on the terraces, however there is an element of the work that must be undertaken from the working basket of the access plant while oversailing the rear gardens. While this element of work is in progress the rear gardens must be vacated until the all clear is given. Residents will be contacted prior to the commencement of works. Works are expected to be completed within the week, however we are dependant on weather.

We thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Should you have any questions or wish to discuss the matter further, please contact Samantha Hancock, customer relations manager by email at samantha.hancock@taylorwimpey.com by phone on 07970 821 061.

Rain Garden / The Green – update

Dear all residents,

We listened to you and we have implemented and will continue to do so, some amazing processes, tools and innovative plans to ensure Chobham Manor remains an iconic location. We have drawn knowledge and support from various stakeholders on the development for which we are grateful. 

Who we are and what we believe in

A core L&Q value is ‘responsibility‘, and with that comes an aim for the Chobham Manor management team and the caretaking team to deliver long, lasting solutions. It is now more than ever that ‘inclusion’, another one of L&Q’s core values has driven us to work collaboratively and draw strength from our differences.

Your caretaking team and the management team are driven to deliver a consistent and unique service. We measure our progress and achievements with one integral tool – measure the impact we have on the development and the residents who call it their home.

What we have done this week (in pictures)

The grounds team who you have met, consisting of Zee and Chris worked throughout the week to work through a process of eliminating tasks such as weeding, raking and watering plants and trees. Please note, all works carried out here were done inline with the government guidelines of adhering to social distancing. Water hoses are being utilised through out the morning and into the afternoon – thus allowing trees and plants to soak in as much water as they can during this heat.

 

Tuesday 2nd – Zee weeded phase 2 near plant areas and benches.

Tree bark placed down by Zee and Chris on both, phase 1 and phase 2. Helps retain the moisture from watering for a longer period of time.

As Zee’s first project on phase 1 on Tuesday, he weeded the entrie play area and it looks amazing.

Facing phase 3 these plants were watered on Tuesday by Zee. As you can see the colour contrast is coming through.

This area, along with others needed weeding. This was carried out by Zee.

Weeds were cut by Chris and the external part of these houses look amazing.

Seating area in phase 2 was weeded and plants were watered.

Phase 1 trees watered. Chris did so following a plan and using his own initiative.

Zee cut back the overgrowing edges to reveal the boundary for a nice finish.

What’s to come?

The above images are an example of team work, creating a plan, supporting one another and most importantly understanding why they are doing it. This behaviour will be showcased throughout. This is the beginning. Next week there will be several things across the development (namely the rain garden and the green) we want to achieve. Once they have been completed, we will let you know.

Wishing you the very best weekend ahead. Please stay safe.
