Today Robert Johnstone (Deputy Contracts Representative) attended the regular south Lambeth housing contractor meeting. He writes:
“This was the first time that I had attended one of these meetings. They are an opportunity for residents’ representatives, council estate services (caretaking) officers and contractors to meet.
Today’s meeting was attended by four tenants’ and residents’ association (TRA) representatives, three estate services housing officers and representatives from Pinnacle and Keepmoat – the cleaning and grounds maintenance contractors. The chair was Omar McDermott, the estate service assistant manager. The three groups (residents, officers and contractors) each took their turn giving reports to the meeting.
I found the meeting refreshingly positive, with everyone seeking to work together towards improving the environment of the south Lambeth estates. These meetings recently changed from being monthly to quarterly, so the next meeting will be on 16th March 2016.
I would like to go to the next meeting full of ideas, comments and feedback from residents, so please get in touch.”
