Blake Tower

Assistant Director, Barbican and Property Services to be heard,


At the last meeting of the Committee, the Assistant Director had reported that communications with Redrow had been poor and residents remained dissatisfied.


It was noted that the City tends to be more successful in engaging with Redrow  than the residents, and Redrow had agreed to meet with the Barbican Association and Blake Tower Residents Association.  


The Assistant Director stressed that the Estate Office was still not in a position to take over the building but he continued to write to residents regularly to provide updates.


Members noted that the Fire Brigade had visited. and some improvements had been made. 


The Chair thanked the Assistant Director and Executive Director for their intervention in this matter and Helen Fentimen and past members Randall Anderson and Michael Hudson.
