Important – Blocked Drains

Dear Residents,

We hope you are all doing well and keeping fit. We understand that during this difficult time, we are doing our best to dispose of sanitary items etc. the best we can. However, it is imperative that we are also aware of the following.

Please note:

We have had several emergency calls whereby drains have been blocked due to residents disposing of items such as, but not limited to:

  • Floss
  • Grease, oil or fat
  • Band aids
  • Medication 
  • Hand/surface wipes 
  • Kitchen tissue (paper towel)
  • Hair 
  • Kitty (cat) litter
  • Sanitary products

Important – do not ignore…

If you are disposing of items such as the above, this will eventually affect the drainage pipe within the communal areas/in and around the estate, causing a leak. If you notice drainage issues please remember:

If you live in Phase 1 , contact L&Q on 0300 456 9998.

If you live in Phase 2, contact Taylor Wimpey on 01277 236 888.

Please note, all repairs are service chargeable. If you are a freeholder, any repairs will be charged directly back to you as this is not covered in your service charges.

The above items amongst others which can be too large in mass and weight to dispose of within toilets must be disposed of using recommended methods such as secure bin bags. During this unprecedented time, we need to work together to ensure minimal contact is made with anyone outside of your home. This means taking care you do not flush inappropriate items, thus leading to a blockage.

Many thanks for your cooperation moving forward.

Parking Control Management (UK) – COVID-19 update

Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd (PCM)
COVID-19 UPDATE  

Like all businesses within the UK and indeed, worldwide, PCM are closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on their business, colleagues, customers and business partners.

PCM are very much aware and respect the Government’s message that all UK citizens and businesses must play their part to protect the most vulnerable in our society and to ensure that the NHS has the ability to care for the inevitable, increased number of patients that will be affected by the virus over the coming days and weeks.

For these reasons, Parking Control Management (UK) Ltd has taken the decision to close business as of Tuesday 24 March 2020.

All services, including enforcement and the operated telephone line will be temporarily closed. The operated telephone line will be temporarily closed until at least the Tuesday 14 April 2020 and all patrols will be temporarily stopped until Sunday 19 April 2020.  PCM aim to resume patrols on Monday 20 April 2020. The automated payment systems will function 24/7. However please see PCM’s website for regular updates www.parkingcontrolmanagement.co.uk 

As enforcement has been suspended the Permit Team is now closed. We urge our car park users to park considerately for the next 3 weeks and essential contractors and care providers do not need to display a temporary code.

All enquiries relating to Parking Charge Notices must be dealt with in writing via the online appeals portal or in exceptional circumstances by post. All details can be found on the reverse of the parking charge or any relevant paperwork. Photographic evidence can be viewed online at www.paymypcn-uk.co.uk

For those using the smart application – this is now also suspended. No parking charges will be issued from today and for the next three weeks.

NOTE: All numbered bays are privately owned and cannot be used at any time other than by the owner. Loading bays are for deliveries, refuse collections and emergency parking only.

If you have any further urgent enquiries please email info@pcm-uk.co.uk. Please note this is the only general contact mailbox that will be monitored. Please be patient when waiting for a reply as PCM anticipate a high volume of traffic.

I would like to thank PCM employees for their dedication over the last few weeks as we have together navigated our way through this challenge.

If you would like to follow PCM’s progress, check their Linked in page and website to keep you updated on reopening.

 

Kind regards,

Newham waste collection service

Dear Residents,

Newham Waste Collection teams for both Domestic & Recycling have advised that normal service will resume. Blocks/flats will be prioritised and houses will now have a fortnightly collection instead of weekly until further notice.

If your bins are not collected on your collection day, please allow at least 24hrs before reporting this as a missed collection, as these are likely to take longer.

Newham would like to reassure residents of flats/blocks that they will remain a priority and they have plans in place for staff shortages. They will not be affected if we were to go into lockdown, as they are in the list of keyworkers.

If you have any questions please contact the property management team or refer to www.newham.gov.uk

 

Kind regards,

Dear Residents,

Re: Traffic Management Plan update

I am writing to inform you there will be work taking place in Olympic Park Avenue to run cable from the UKPN Sub Station to Phase 4. There will be traffic control in place to ensure the health and safety of road users and operatives.

Work will be commencing on Tuesday 10 March 2020 and is proposed to take 10 days.

As you can see from the drawing below full signage will be in place, as will traffic lights for managing the flow of traffic. This work is being carried out by Poweron Connections not Taylor Wimpey.

Traffic Management Plan for Phase 4

26 February 2020

 

Dear Residents,

Re: Traffic Management Plan update

I am writing to inform you that now the Piling is coming to completion on Phase 4 we will be implementing the new Travel Management Plan.

The new Traffic Management Plan has been designed to ensure the least amount of disruption and inconvenience to residents and local businesses.

We will be completing the hoarding around Phase 4 and after the tower crane erections w/c 02.03.20 (due to last 1 week) we will be reducing Olympic Park Avenue to a single lane from the existing hoarding line next to Park View Mansions along the face of Phase 4 to the road crossing at Timber Lodge.

Traffic will flow one way anti clockwise from Velodrome towards Honour Lea Avenue. Olympic Park Avenue will be separated with a line of hoarding along the centre of the road separating Construction Vehicles and general public.

People wishing to travel via Olympic Park Avenue will be directed along Honour Lea Avenue and Peloton Avenue. Following discussions, this plan was agreed as the safest and least disruptive option we have available to us.

See plan outline here: CM Ph. 4 TMP Logistics Hoarding Compound 2020-02-11 Rev. E
