Almshouses Update

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.



Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services in respect of the City of London Almshouses in Lambeth and the eight Gresham Almshouses on the Estate.


In respect of the refurbishment works, Members noted that the Decent Homes Contractor had been secured for the next phase.  However, there was a delay in securing the funding for the 8 Gresham units and the City Solicitor had advised that, until this was resolved, the works could not proceed. Members expressed their frustration at the situation and the Chairman (of the Community and Children’s Services Committee) offered to take this up with the City Solicitor, if the matter could not be resolved shortly.  


RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
