The next GLERA meeting will be on Monday 31 October @ 7pm downstairs in the community centre.
We’ll be reporting back on GLERA committee efforts to follow up on frustration expressed at the AGM around reporting repairs and anti-social behaviour.
Our local MP Nickie Aiken will be there along with many of our local councillors and our new Alderwoman, Sue Pearson.
We’ll also have useful information about what help should be on offer to mitigate against the cold this winter, along with feedback from the Insulate Golden Lane workshop...
The City of London have been working on some insulation measures and Jason Hayes from the Major Works team will bring along examples to the workshop, showing how they can be implemented with little disruption. Things like draft strips, thermal curtains, thermostatic radiator valves, silver foil behind radiators.
All the measures will be free to tenants and it's hoped leaseholders will be able to benefit from bulk buying with anticipated lower prices than purchasing independently. Along with testing out on voids (empty flats) Jason is looking for a tenant from each block to participate in a pilot scheme so that people can see the measures in place and know how much time and hassle it takes.
The City will very shortly follow up with a resident survey to see which of these measures are of interest.
