PIMLICO LABOUR ACTION REPORT – SEPTEMBER 2021
News from Councillors Rita Begum and Shamim Talukder, with Robert Eagleton and Jason Williams
Lenthall House, Churchill Gardens
We have asked the Housing Department to fix a leak which has damaged two flats in Lenthall House. The Housing Department told us:
“Our engineers attended both flats. The job required moving some of the wall to be able to access the kitchen sink waste pipe. This was successfully replaced, and the wall fixed.”
We have asked the Highways Team to investigate this issue:
“Our Residents Association have for years been asking the Council to improve the pavements in Warwick Way. These are the 12″ square concrete pavings which are very uneven and cause problems for the hundreds of elderly residents living on Abbots Manor who have to go the local supermarkets on a daily basis.”
The Highways Team say:
“One of my Inspectors attended site and remedial works were issued for the trip hazards identified at the intervention levels. We will continue to monitor as required and issue any remedial action as appropriate.”
We have asked the Highways Team to investigate the drains and gullies in Guildhouse House after a resident contacted us following the recent flash floods.
We have asked the Planning Department to investigate allegations of unauthorized building works in Longmore Street.
