RCS Site | You can't have your moustache and eat the soup

There's an old Tamil proverb about wanting your moustache and your soup that is a version of "you can't have your cake and eat it". But what if, sometimes, you can...Last month we looked at…Continue

"Good idea. If it helps sort out all the iffy lettings going on why not, and I don't think 138k split between everyone is too much to pay if a few things get sorted out."

"Then it sounds like it might be cabs making the trip up from the Museum of London roundabout past Barbican station cruising for fares and then turning round if they don't find any. There are just so unbelievably many! Perhaps we could talk to…"

Charles Humphries replied to Lee Bailey's discussion Dangers of u-turning vehicles on Fann Street
"U Turns in Fann Street are perfectly legal. It is that no U turn sign in Aldersgate Street that is causing all the trouble. It would arguably be safer to let traffic U turn in Aldersgate Street where there is good visibility and a fairly wide road,…"

"If the City want to do this then why should the residents pay?  I am not paying for someone to come in here spying on me.  Let them chase after illegal sub letters and not genuine residents."

"What is an issue is that it is costing £138,000 which presumably all residents will be paying for."

Christo replied to Charles Humphries's discussion Intrusive Tenancy Visits?
"There is no problem with visits. The possible problem is with wasted visits and duplication of info or worse poor safety of collected data. For example we were visited last year. Plus we provided the City with photos and ID in the past. If they need…"

"I agree with Richard. If you've nothing to hide, then what is the problem!? Well done to the CoL for checking their tenencies. This should be a regular thing. Offenders should be thrown out of their properties straight away."

Richard replied to Charles Humphries's discussion Intrusive Tenancy Visits?
"I don't think it is intrusive at all, why shouldn't they check if everything is in order an no one is sub letting? If I owned a property I rented out I would want to check on it every so often. I actually found the last visit quite useful…"

Maria Elizabeth Prior replied to Charles Humphries's discussion Intrusive Tenancy Visits?
"I agree Christo.  The COL have every right to check properties to make sure only the legal tenants are living there and I support that.  However, why would they need a camera and tape measure to check on illegal tenants?  "

Christo replied to Charles Humphries's discussion Intrusive Tenancy Visits?
"I have mixed feelings. Parts of it seem very useful and potentially helpful others seem a tad draconian and intrusive, particularly when you have had a visit a year or two ago. Showing  two forms of ID seems a bit over the top when you…"

"I don't see any problems with this    I had a tenancy visit around 2012 by (name omitted) and everything was fine.   It's good that the CoL are checking properties to ensure that only the legal tenants are living there!"

There Are Biscuits. A personal view from the Islington Planning Meeting

Posted on March 5, 2018 at 18:00 1 Comment

The man in uniform knows a rabble rouser when he sees one. “Are these… persons with you?” he asks warily eyeing the group of thirty or so Golden Laneites who had braved the blizzard conditions and the strange bio-diesel tang of the No.4 bus to make it up Islington Town Hall. We review the troops. 

The council’s porter was a man who’d seen a thing or two in his time. “Just keep it civilised, you know - have a coffee, have a cup of tea… no arguing with the…
