Dear CMRA & Residents,

Please note update further to break in and security breach on the 5th September 2019 unfortunately there has been a further incident early this morning at 1.36am (26/09/19) and more bicycles were stolen from Hyett Court, Peloton Avenue. The block was accessed by the same culprits in the same way as before by accessing the block by way of Fire drop key and CCTV room. LQ with NACD have already accessed the CCTV footage of the new incident and this has been downloaded and will also be shared with the Police.

Please note that if any residents’ bicycles have been stolen, they must report directly to the Police and obtain their own individual crime/ CAD reference numbers as this unfortunately cannot be done as group crime reference number.

Please note that in relation to the concerns around Chobham Manor Place, LQ have been liaising with the Police who have been made aware of the recent incident and I can confirm that extra patrols in the area have already commenced.

  • Following on from a meeting held this morning with LLP both L&Q and TW are working together to replace on all bicycle locks to bicycle stores with a bespoke lock and I will be able provide further update on this shortly.
  • In the interim I would strongly advise residents that to store their bicycles in their flats whilst we continue to resolution and replace on the locks on bicycles stores.

Please can all residents contact their local neighbourhood policing team (NPT) on 0208 721 2727 or email them at NE-SNTStratford@met.police.uk  if they have any concerns or have information to share regarding any criminal behaviour, as always, in an emergency, they should call 999.

We want to reassure residents that both L&Q and TW are taking this matter seriously and would strongly advice residents to be extra vigilant.

This update and post will be added to website and text messages to residents advising of the link also.


Many Thanks,

Your Management Team.

Food Waste Trial Project

Food waste makes up half of all the rubbish collected in Newham and costs both the borough and residents huge amounts every year in food wasted. To try and reduce this Newham Council are launching a food waste trial project to measure the amount of food waste produced by each household in the borough.

Newham will be looking at different kinds of alternatives that they could use to reduce food waste with the aim of drawing up a list of options that work and those that don’t have any effect.

A number of volunteer residents will be selected to participate in the trial which will run for  four weeks. The volunteers will be asked to separate their food waste into compostable food waste bags every day and then weigh the waste before disposing of it their bin. Once a week the volunteers will be asked to submit their daily weights they’ve recorded measured to the Council’s waste and recycling team. They will also be asked to estimate the financial value of the food waste that is produced in their household.

If you wish to volunteer in our Food Waste Trial Project, please email Foodwastetrial@newham.gov.uk by  Sunday 22 September 2019 and you will receive the application form and project information.

Newham are looking for 100 volunteer households and therefore not all applicants may be successful.

All those who are successful in becoming part for the trial will receive an email confirmation by Monday 27 September 2019 at the latest.

You will be required to attend a training workshop, where we will provide you with all relevant information, materials and equipment that you will need. The details will be emailed to successful applicants.
