Development Update:

Major Work:

You are now aware that we have issued a scope of works and the tender process has commenced. The first notice that has been issued to all leaseholders, and  allows for any building contractors to be nominated. Should you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please provide the full contact details urgently.

I have applied for funding, but cannot advise as to the success or costs at this stage.

You will note that there are 2 schedules for which the work relates. I apologise for the confusion and below is the correct zones as mentioned in the first notice that has been provided to you.

Zone A:  This relates to all internal areas that only the residential units will contribute

Zone B:  This relates to is all external areas to which all properties will contribute, both residents and commercial units

Gates:

I am in the process of connecting the pedestrian gates which will necessitate in all occupiers being given access. Please will all leaseholders make contact with me providing details as to who should be provided with the fob to access. One fob will be given to each flat to commence, with more being made available at a cost to individuals. I am awaiting the details of the cost of the fobs, and this will be provided to those that wish to purchase.

Door Entry:

There will also be a lock change taking place to the main entry doors that will effect  flats 1-12. Again I will need leaseholders from those areas to make contact to advise as to who should be given the new key. 

Please be aware, that perpetrators are gaining access to the stairwells, where damage is being caused and access is being tried to individual flats at the development. The Police have been made aware and have advised that they will pay special attention. If you have any concerns with unknown individuals causing issues, please call the police without delay.

Please ensure that you  continually visit this  web page for your development  where all updates will be placed.

It is now imperative that leaseholders ensure that we at Compton Property Management hold correct contact details for you. A meeting will be arranged as soon as the tender process is complete for which all leaseholders will be invited.  I am hopeful that current  restrictions for travel will also allow.

It will be at that meeting that costs will be discussed.

You  need to ensure we hold the correct address- email and telephone numbers for you as the  leaseholder.

Please read this message issued by Greater Manchester Fire Rescue Service

'You will no doubt have seen that there has been a significant fire at The Cube in Bolton on Friday the 15th November and our Crews remain in attendance at the incident. It is too early to establish what role the materials used in the construction have played in the development of the fire but the images of the fire will undoubtedly cause concern for some residents who live in high rise buildings and in particular those where there is an identified risk of external fire spread. GMFRS has produced the attached information to provide advice and reassurance to residents across Greater Manchester living in high rise buildings'
