Agenda item

Barbican Residential Arrears

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


The Committee received a report of the Executive Director, Community and Children’s Services, which advised Members of current arrears in respect of tenants and leaseholders on the Barbican Estate. Members noted a more detailed appendix on the closed part of the agenda at item 19.


Members noted that residents have a statutory right to a loan in respect of major works.  Where residents are experiencing financial difficulties, particularly as a result of the large balancing charges issued in September, flexible terms were available.  The Chair stressed that any resident with concerns should approach the Estate Office as soon as possible to seek assistance. 


RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
