Weekly Council Planning applications decisions (22 September 2018)

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.

Is your block one of the ones having the ‘Window renewal external & communal decoration’ major works?

If you are one of the folks that are having these works done, you may wish to be aware of one individual’s experience of having these works completed in the Ibsley neighbourhood only recently. Please note any of the information that follows are only suggestions and relate to experiences that have been shared. You should query any of the below, or anything else regarding the works directly with the Council for further information.

If you are a leaseholder and you want to have a more detailed understanding of the costs, you might be able to ask the Council for a breakdown of the costs, such as the example below. You might even be able to ask for a full list of works that goes with these costs.

windows costs v1.1

The Ibsley neighbourhood experience was a bit of let down as the window supplier went bust and the residents received the letter below.

Keepmoat 1.2

Some of the detail was lacking, such as contractors not supplying keys for the window locks and needing to be asked for them, and some jobs were not completed. If you can, it might be worth asking for a detailed list of what should be done so you can review the progress of the works, after all, this will be a large spend (one estimate seen is £8,891.91) and you want to get your money worth.

It might be worth asking for details of the guarantees as well, so you have an idea of how long the works will last with the cover provided. An example from the Ibsley neighbourhood is below;

guarantees v1.0

Finally, if you get stuck and think some assistance is required, you always have your Councillors. The Labour Party was quite keen some years ago on the Ibsley neighbourhood having the window upgrade as the letter below shows.

Labour v2.1

Based on some old figures, it is estimated that of the 308 properties, 110 (36%) are leasehold. So if it is assumed that all leaseholders are paying something like £8,891.91 that makes the total leasehold spend of £978,110. Shame there isn’t an Alton Estate leaseholder association which could overview this to see whether you get your money’s worth.
