But this has highlighted the complete mess-up of the management of Leabank Square.
That block is managed by Newlon, the block opposite is managed by Hamilton King, the centre block and 74-93 terrace is managed by Family Mosaic, the two corner-canal blocks are managed by PMMS, the 19-33 terrace is a mixed bag of private & management companies, the central green & riverbank are manged by PMMS again. All this is our tiny Leabank Square?!
And guess what?! These different management companies have never - that's never ever - sat down together to discuss our needs!!!
Can you believe that?!
Well all that will soon change! As you all know - there are two separate community organisations here in Leabank Square. The Leabank Square Community Association (chaired by Tracie) - and the Leabank Square Tenants Association (chaired by Real).
Together - they have given the different management companies a sort of ultimatum. As you can see by the attached email - they have set a date by when the management companies have to meet up with us - their residents - and chat about Leabank Square. I urge you to contact any person you may know in your management company to attend this meeting. It's definitely in your interest!!
This way - cock-ups like the scaffolding catastrophe will never happen again. No residents should have to have scaffolding up around their windows with faulty security, easy access to burglars, trick-or-treaters, fireworks abusers, etc in the darker winter months - ever!!
We need joined up management for Leabank Square, and the only way we are going to get it - is by getting the management companies to talk to each other - and us!
