Live roof for recycling bins in Manresa area

Have you seen the live roof enclosure in the Manresa neighbourhood?

This area has had a history of being an area that was concreted and then not used for quite some time, then the recycling bins were moved with no prior notice to residents – https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2018/03/03/manresa-neighbourhoods-mysterious-moving-recycling-bins/

To make the area look a bit nicer the Kimpton House Residents Association (KHRA) suggested a live roof for the recycling bins. For some background the idea is along the following – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_roof .

The KHRA took this forward via the Small Improvement Budget (SIBs).

Kimpton House Residents Association has its information board

It looks good and is being used by the Kimpton House Residents Association (KHRA). These boards are very useful for sharing information with residents of a building or neighbouring areas. This article is a little late though it’s understood it was installed late September 2018.

The KHRA took this forward via the Small Improvement Budget (SIBs).

Late notice for Kimpton House…again?

At the Western Area Housing Pane (WAHP) of 24 September 2018, communication was again mentioned by some Residents Associations as needing improving. From the WAHP 17 July 2018, when last minute communication was mentioned, the Council has been minuted as stating that it “undertook to look into the concerns raised but that a period of one week’s notice should routinely be provided”.

Again, another situation of where this one week notice has not been adhered to and this building has the Kimpton House Residents Association (KHRA);

  • 21/9/18 – letter dated
  • 24/9/18 – hand delivered at 10:07 (according to one resident)
  • 27/9/18 and 28/9/18 – works requiring water to be switched off

Other examples since this WAHP of 17 July 2018 are;

The poor communication regarding bats –

https://roeregeneration.wordpress.com/2018/07/26/this-must-be-driving-the-council-batty/

Two lots of contractor works on Hyacinth Road whereby contractors used car parks for leaving materials and this area has the Stoughton Close/Greatham Walk/Ryefield Path Residents Association (SCGWRPRA);
