Well done to Putney Vale on having this £1.3m facelift and this is testimony to what can be done with an active Residents Association. It’s been mentioned to me that the number of properties in this Residents Association is about 300.
If that is the case, then that would be the equivalent of six tower blocks on the Alton Estate. The Manresa neighbourhood has six towers – Crondall House, Kimpton House, Chilcombe House, Somborne House, Farnborough House, Rushmere House – each with 48 flats, which makes 288 altogether. The Alton Estate has something like 3,300 properties yet there is a lack of such a strong Residents Association, or one as large as the one on Putney Vale.
Come folks, let’s see some RAs get off the ground and make things happen.

Another read of this magazine might be in order. There’s a lot of gloating about the Council’s housing progress, yet there didn’t seem to be any mention of any property sale values. If anyone did see any sale figures, please let us know.
