Aside Posted on Updated on
PPCR have been invited by East Thames (part of the L&Q Group) to provide Tenant Support Services for residents of New Union Wharf, Isle of Dogs. Once the incumbent Advisor retires in late May PPCR will act as the Independent Tenant Adviser for the Estate residents.
New Union Wharf estate is being transformed in partnership with the residents, through a rolling decant programme, from a 100% social housing estate to a mixed tenure development.
Residents on the estate have been heavily involved in the decision to go ahead with the regeneration. Hill Partnership was selected by East Thames in 2013 with inputs from the estate residents to carry out the regeneration work.
The New Union Wharf estate regeneration will see the existing 189 homes replaced by 399 modern, energy efficient homes. Residents have been working closely with East Thames and contractor, Hill Partnership, to ensure that the new estate meets the needs and expectations of the existing residents and local community.
PPCR are running workshops for tenants and homeowners. The workshops are your opportunity to talk to your Tenants and Leaseholders/Freeholders advisor for a clear explanation of what is the Draft Options Policy and for you to ask any questions about your concerns. PPCR will explain what the (draft) Options might mean for you.
The Tenant Workshops are at Latymer Church Hall on
Saturday 6th May, 11am-1pm and on Thursday 11th May, 6.30pm-8.30pm
The Leaseholders/Freeholders Workshops are at Frinstead House Residents Room (Garden area of Frinstead House) on
Saturday 6th May, 11am-1pm and on Monday 15th May, 6.30pm-8.30pm
If you cannot come to any the workshops we will be organising door-knocking session and drop-in sessions for individual blocks to speak to you. Alternatively if you have any questions prior to the May consultation workshops, please contact Helen Redd and Pamela Kovachich, your independents advisors using the form below. Thank you
