Review what the Residents Association achieved during the period April 2012 to February 2017. A refreshed constitution was approved towards the end of this period (constitution and code of conduct).

What is the Resident Association for?
A resident association helps give a stronger voice to everyone, ensuring the views of all active tenants and leaseholders is heard more clearly by our landlord Southwark Council. A resident association can also apply for funding that goes towards social activities to strengthen our community. Our five Christmas parties from 2012 were funded this way. The Residents Association also manages the use of Room 93 on P-level which has a small kitchen and toilet and is suitable for meetings or socials (hire contract and fire risk assessment). Please contact the secretary to rent the room for your event.

The Cleaning Challenge
The Residents Association also reviewed the erroneous schedule of cleaning that council were following for our block and reached agreement with Leon Williams at the council for a new schedule. This has been ignored and without a Residents Association cannot be easily enforced. Review what cleaning is meant to be done in the agreement and help your officers ensure the council enforces it. The new provision of communal wheelie bins for recycling that were introduced by the council in July 2018 has immediately become a messy blight as the council positioned them in a location against resident requests and warnings. Their failure to regularly empty the bins exacerbates their blight. They should be located against the spacious North wall away from the Princess St but the council are intransigent and confused about land ownership since TfL’s 2015 resurfacing of our public perimeter.

Illegal Subletting
Council tenants are being deprived affordable housing in Perronet House by the illegal subletting of their flats by some fake council tenants. Private tenants are being ripped off and  the named council tenant is either not resident or has supplied fake information. The council’s resident officers have a poor grip on this serious and unfair housing issue. If you suspect fraud contact the council’s specialists on housingfraud@southwark.gov.uk or call 020 7525 4686 to make an anonymous report. You will be helping someone get a more affordable home who deserves it and protecting yourself from dodgy and potentially dangerously managed flats.
