"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19.

Housing User Board

The Housing User Board, is group of residents who are willing to help Housing officers to develop new policies and review existing ones. Whilst we consult all residents on many issues, we felt it would be valuable to be able to explore things in more depth with people who were willing to give us more time. The Housing User Board is open to all residents on all our estates.

We understand that most people are too busy to attend lots of meetings, so we will offer a range of ways for HUB members to get involved. These will include:

  • Completing surveys on certain aspects of our services or policies. These would be more detailed that the general questionnaires we send to all residents;
  • Reading and giving us comments on specific documents;
  • One-off consultation events to discuss a specific policy or service change;
  • Time-limited working groups (i.e. 2-6 meetings only) to focus on the development or review of a specific policy or service.

HUB members can choose to be involved as many, or as few of these things as they wish.

The number of issues we bring to the HUB may change, depending on what is happening in the Housing Service and also on whether there are national changes we need to seek your views on. But it will always be up to members to choose whether to take part or not.

Members will earn Time Credits for any time they give us – one for each survey you complete or document you comment on and two for each meeting you attend. Time Credits can be used to pay for lots of different activities such as going to some cinemas and theatres, using leisure centres or going to visitor attractions in London. Information about Time Credits can be found here. We can also provide a printed version of the Time Credits booklet if needed.

We will send you information by email in the first instance. We will make this as accessible as possible. If a HUB member doesn’t have access to email or needs the information in print, if they let us know we will arrange for hard copies to be sent to them.

To join the HUB, please provide the following details to community.engagement@cityoflondon.gov.uk:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address if you have one

Hope this information is helpful to you and please do get back to us, if you would like to join the HUB group.

Kindest regards,

Community Engagement Team
