Periodic work – Offeld Services has completed periodc re-decoration work. Now the work compound has been removed, relaxation of parking controls in St Benedicts Close to allow parking in other spaces will end on 3 July. See the major work page.

Flat landlord electrics – The pilot electrical upgrade proved successful so tenders have been obtained and the upgrade will be extended to other flat blocks after Section 20 consultation currently underway. Subject to consultation, work will be done as soon as reserve funds permit to help limit electricity cost increases.

Flat staircase windows – Flat communal staircase windows will be replaced with uPVC ones, not re-decorated, as replacement only costs about 60% more now safe access at height costs so much. This will save money by 2027, so will be done as soon as sufficient reserve funds have been collected, after the elecrical work to reduce ongoing electricity costs.

Flat key system – Following risk assessment of the recent key loss in accordance with existing policies and consultation with owners, the flat master key system will be changed as locks need replacing, as this has majority support, rather than immediately. Replacement is expected over the next couple of years as most locks are worn after about 8 years, the first 3 or 4 in autumn 2022.

Announcements are also available on TweetTwitter @stben_tooting in summary and on the St Benedicts announcements RSS feed.
