Malcolmson House – update
Following our enquiries about the installation of double-glazing to windows in Block A, Malcolmson House, Peabody have told us they are bringing forward the programme by three years:
“In relation to the windows of Malcolmson House (Block A), this was recently reviewed by our investments team last month. The installation of the double glazing to Block A was originally scheduled for 2026-27, however, we have decided to move this forward sooner and this is now scheduled to take place next year (2023-24).”
We are delighted by this news and very pleased that our representations to Peabody on behalf of residents has been successful.

Forsyth House, Lillington Gardens
We have been helping residents in Forsyth House where boiling hot water burst through the pipes, coming through the walls and ceilings and travelled down two levels of flats. One ceiling had fallen in, and an elderly resident was rushed to hospital with burns.
“After 12 years of living in absolute disrepair and as a result leading to a burst central heating pipe, I would like to thank @LizaBegum for ensuring @CityWestminster fix my mums property to an acceptable standard!”
