Update on staffing / Management office
Following COVID 19 -The local site office remains closed to the public. The office is currently being used by the caretakers to complete their administrative duties (this includes the additional work they are completing for the Property Management Team) as well as providing the usual welfare facilities for the team. The property management team will not be present on site at the office for the month of May but please be assured that your Property Managers are still available and are providing a service to our residents and have been in communication via email/text/phone. Your Property Managers have arranged for a call-in session on 3rd June from 4pm-6pm. Communications will go out via text today, and there will also be a poster displayed in communal areas. The caretakers are continuing to carry out their normal duties whilst still concentrating on the high touch point areas.
Health & safety checks are still being completed by caretakers, in addition to their current roles they are now carrying out the Estate Inspections for each block for the Property Managers. The caretakers are reporting all issues on a daily basis to the property management team and also continue to report bulk/repairs/grounds issues etc.
We will be working with Taylor Wimpey over the coming weeks to tidy the rain garden, removing weeds and mulching around the trees. We will be concentrating on watering all of the trees and the bedded areas with immediate effect. Unfortunately, there are some trees that have died and will need replacing along with some plants that have been identified. A programme of works for the Grounds Maintenance is currently being put together with the assistance of Taylor Wimpey and some residents of Chobham Manor to ensure a more comprehensive and consistent approach going forward.
Update – This was sent to CMRA and all stakeholders for an update.
Planned Programme of works
This is currently being worked on. More updates to follow.
Rain garden information
The page dedicated to the rain garden will be added onto the website in the next fortnight. Once we have done this, we will text residents to redirect them to view this.
Update – PCM have resumed enforcement on site from 14th May. We have created a permit for key workers in line with PCM. Residents who are eligible will need to contact the property management team and provide evidence. As we are limited in space for parking this will only be given to NHS workers.
Service from Newham is continuing, and we are still in contact with the supervisor reporting any issues to him directly, including missed collections. Newham have also resumed the collection of bulk rubbish collections. The property managers still hold regularly monthly stakeholder meetings with Newham to discuss any refuse waste related issues or concerns.
