Fahrenheit 451 showing at Ibstock Place School (25 February 2019)

Background

An amazing opportunity is happening soon in this ward and that is the special screening of the movie Fahrenheit 451 which will be shown at the Ibstock Place School.

A short summary which has been seen describes the movie as such “The Putney Society is showing this 1966 film to illustrate the importance of the Alton Estate in the development of 20th century housing, starting off the programme with a clip of the eminent architect Richard Rogers discussing the Estate. Co-incidentally, the film which features the estate happens to be very topical with all sorts of contemporary issues predicted – censorship, fake news and so on – a fascinating combination! Is your favourite book one of the titles burnt?”.

Demolition zone property sale prices, how much?

A question raised at the Roehampton Partnership on 26 September 2018 was how much the sale price of properties in the regeneration area. The response from the Council was that this was information which could not be provided.

Not sure of the specific reasons for the sale prices not being given though Zoopla can assist.

Homelife magazine (June 2018)

Hopefully you’ve received the Homelife June 2018 (Issue 79) magazine this past week as there are a few articles which might be of interest.

  1. Council welcomes PM’s pledge on funding for cladding replacement (page 3)

Now that £16 million can be saved by the Council then hopefully it can use the money towards major works and improvements, such as improving council tenant’s residences and roads, perhaps?

  1. Council remains committed to improving fire safety on Grenfell anniversary (page 4)

It states that “measures which were unanimously supported by both Labour and Conservative members”. It would be interesting to have Councillor Paul White’s take on this article as this it is understood (rightly or wrongly) that Labour supports a block by block approach, that it, if the block wants retro-fitted water sprinklers, then that block should have it.

Interesting comment about “Several councils have already committed to retro-fit sprinklers, Birmingham City Council (BCC) which has 213 tower blocks, the highest in the country”.

This did not go so smoothly in BCC, as a Councillor even challenged whether this was an economic use of the Council’s funds. Have a read of the following articles:

  1. Hersham Close grass instalment (page 13)

The effort and persistence of the Hersham Close Residents Association (HCRA) regarding improving a piece of land at the intersection of Hersham Close 73-95 and Hersham Close 41-71 is highlighted.

  1. Alton Estate regeneration

Homelife (February 2018)

Have you read the latest issue of the Homelife magazine (Issue 78, February 2018)?

Well, there are a few items which may be of interest………..

Cladding update (page 12)

The top of the page refers to a cladding update for Sudbury House, though absolutely no mention of an update for retro-fitting of water sprinklers! Nothing? No mention at all regarding the now involvement of the First Tier Property Tribunal. It has to be wandered why. It was heard that on Saturday 4 March 2018 that residents of Kimpton House were collecting signatures for a petition against having retro-fitting water sprinklers and many people were (1) not aware of the potential cost of the installation of water sprinklers or (2) the water sprinklers were to be installed inside the flats.

Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour (page 13)

A useful page which lists contact details of the various departments for various issues.

Estate Improvements

A good example of what can be done through the Small Improvement Budget (SIB).

No mention of…………..

Strange, that there seems to be no mention of the Alton Estate regeneration and there has been a lot happening;
