Weekly Council Planning applications and decisions (4 April 2020)

Given there is so much happening in the ward at the moment, it might be worth residents keeping a watch on what is being planned for the Alton Estate. So, on a best endeavours basis, we’ll try to include this section.

The page numbers refer to the Wandsworth Borough Council’s (WBC) planning applications and decisions for the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward. Whilst every effort is made to highlight the page numbers and present the information below it is always best for the reader to have a read of the original Council documents just in case any errors have been made.

Should Leaseholders be concerned about service charges and the Council’s management of it?

Background

Recently an article in the Guardian referred to the challenges of service charges in council properties and it seemed to echo many of the discussions which were had around retro-fitting water sprinklers into tower blocks.

The article, ‘Leaseholders facing ‘staggering’ bills for ex-council flats’, starts off with a mention of ‘Right-to-buy owners are up in arms after being charged £24k for a new communal heating system’ which, fortunately, at the time of this blog being written it’s understood that not (yet) have any such service charges been had on the Alton Estate, yet if that is incorrect please do let highlight this.

Link to the article – https://www.theguardian.com/money/2020/feb/08/leaseholders-facing-staggering-bills-for-ex-council-flats

Service charge example

There has been a concern expressed by some leaseholders regarding the frequency of major works service charges. The following service charges have been paid for a two bed in the Fontley Way neighbourhood over the past 10 years:

Notes:

Did you notice?

There’s a few items to notice:

  • The last annual charge was the highest in 10 years.
  • There were no major works charges paid for in between 2010 and 2015.
  • Then major works charges will be paid for in years 2016, 2017 and 2020.

Could have been worse?

Well, this is a block that could have paid for retro-fitting of water sprinklers and if this had gone the Council’s way then maybe these would be paid for by now or in the process of being paid?

That would have been another potential £3,500 to £5,000?

Reviewing service charges

This blog has already referred to a suggestion of how one might be able to review one’s service charges and this is detailed at – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2018/12/29/do-you-ever-look-at-the-itemisation-of-your-service-charges/ .

One leaseholder reviews the estimated charge with the actual charge to see how they differ and if they differ too much then asks questions as to what has caused the variation. An example of how such a comparison has been made is below:

Conclusion

With such major works costs becoming more frequent in recent years along with unexpected additional costs (such as the additional service charge for the double glazing major works) is it any wonder that there’s scepticism with regards to how the Council seems to view leaseholders?

Chilcombe House mud bath

Background

To further highlight the car parking constraints on the Alton East this blog features the pressures on the Fontley Way area. This has featured many times in various media and most recently in the article featuring emergency vehicle access – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2020/02/08/should-alton-estate-residents-be-concerned-about-emergency-vehicle-access/ .

The area by Chilcombe House has become a mud bath with vehicles driving some distance over the green area by the recycling bins.

The area being referred to – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’50.8%22N+0%C2%B014’35.4%22W/@51.447443,-0.2437836,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4474431!4d-0.2431654

Views towards Chilcombe House

Views away from Chilcombe House

How it appears to be happening?

The arrow in the following photo highlights what appears to the path that vehicles are taking to access this car parking area.

Conclusion

The proposed Fontley Way decant site (planning application 2019/4697) is going to be built very nearby and it poses queries regarding the regeneration in that it does impact residents not in the demolition area. Is the number of car parking places proposed by this planning application going to be anywhere sufficient to alleviate the current challenges for existing residents in this area?

Should Alton Estate residents be concerned about emergency vehicle access?

Background

The Alton Regeneration Watch has been highlighting the potential situation of the difficulty that emergency vehicles may face if they need to access buildings on the Alton Estate.

This article provides some examples as consideration and it is hoped that such concerns are addressed by the Council and the respective ward Councillors.

Kimpton House

This blog highlighted that in 2018 there was some back and forth with the Council regarding yellow lines which were painted to improve access for emergency vehicles. This was done WITHOUT discussing this with the Kimpton House Residents’ Association (KHRA). When this was worked through with the KHRA there were amendments to what had been done which satisfied the requirement to have yellow lines to meet the Council’s ask AND allow more cars to be parked in the area. This being an example of the positive outcomes that can be achieved when the Council works with residents.

Link to the Council’s letter regarding the need to have yellow lines for emergency vehicle access – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2018/01/28/kimpton-house-yellow-lines-became-more-interesting/

The works were located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’51.9%22N+0%C2%B014’38.9%22W/@51.447752,-0.2447596,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4477523!4d-0.2441407

Farnborough House

Nearby to Kimpton House is Farnborough House which in 2019 had a gas leak and it appeared that emergency vehicles struggled to access to building?

Have a read of the July 2019 blog article regarding this –https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2019/07/21/farnborough-house-gas-leak-8-july-2019/

The emergency was located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’48.5%22N+0%C2%B014’37.0%22W/@51.446805,-0.2451731,561m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4468053!4d-0.2436029

Ibsley Gardens

Whilst the photo was within the Farnborough House blog article it might be worthwhile placing it within this article. You can just see the fire engines at the end of the road. Would the fire engines get past these parked vehicles?

Photo located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’46.0%22N+0%C2%B014’32.7%22W/@51.446121,-0.2434742,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4461209!4d-0.2424114

Hyacinth Road

Would a fire engine get between these vehicles? This road is a dead end with Hyacinth Road 1-12 at the end of it which is Sheltered Housing.

Photo located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’45.8%22N+0%C2%B014’26.7%22W/@51.446056,-0.2415007,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.446056!4d-0.2407378

In between Kimpton House and Farnborough Road

Would a fire engine be able to make it’s was in between the vehicles on the road? At a stretch the fire engine might nudge the red car out of the way to drive to Kimtpon House via the grassed area.

Photo located at – https://www.google.com/maps/place/51%C2%B026’50.4%22N+0%C2%B014’38.5%22W/@51.44733,-0.2451273,280m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m14!1m7!3m6!1s0x48760edc9481217b:0xcaf7275928e0968e!2sLondon+SW15+4ND!3b1!8m2!3d51.4480944!4d-0.2452693!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d51.4473298!4d-0.2440327

Conclusion

It may have been noticed though three of the examples are in the same area as the proposed Fontley Way decant site (planning application 2019/4697). Another is nearby, this being the access to one of two access points to Fontley Way. To think that the pressures on car parking on the Alton Estate may not cause issues for emergency vehicle access is possibly taking a risk to resident’s safety?

Poor pavements result in wheelchair whizzing down Holybourne Avenue?

Background

Recently a wheelchair was seen driving down Holybourne Avenue and it’s wondered whether the state of the pavements have anything to do with this.

The following with have photos of pavements in the area where this wheelchair was located along with possible causes as to the state of the pavements.

The wheelchair

This photo was taken near the entrance of Whitelands College.

Potential causes of the damage to pavements

In a nutshell, large vehicles could well be a cause.

This example happened the day before the sighting of the wheelchair. This is at the entrance of the Holybourne Day Centre as the van reversed into the car park.

Car parking pressures are possibly pushing large vehicles onto pavements and consequently damaging those pavements.

Labour Party 2014 campaign material – regeneration a “farce”?

Background

Recently it has been mentioned that it would be helpful to residents if the Councillors that were elected to represent its constituents provided regular updates on their promises.

Off the back of this it was thought that it might be of interest to highlight some of the past campaign materials and newsletters which the Labour Party has produced.

This 2014 Local Election leaflet mentions some interesting promises which have relevance.

Danebury Avenue – Tories don’t listen

The Alton Regeneration consultation “is already turning into a farce”……………………has it changed?

Labour pledge – ‘No’ to opening the Danebury Barrier

Hopefully some of you remember that two residents spent a day at Danebury Avenue barriers collecting signatures to keep the barrier closed………….not the Labour Party…………..

“Adequate provision for resident parking”……………….two regeneration decant sites on Alton East have result in a net loss of resident parking.

“Return to the same area post regeneration”……………..how many have left between now and then?

“Improved bus services”…………………yawn…………………this is dusted off and mentioned annually……………..thought what HAS been done is the question.

Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams

What’s been delievered?

Double glazing

Fontley Way is mentioned yet this was not handled well and there was many unhappy expressions of views about this and two years after the major works service charge was paid there is a further service charge bill? Where is the Labour Party in terms of reviewing this fiasco?

Tories in disarray

Hmmmmmmmmmm….for the 2018 Local Election wasn’t there a gent that was running for the ward and he dropped out which lead to Councillor Claire Gilbert being a candidate and then being elected Councillor.
