Short Term Letting/Airbnbs

Dear Resident

We have noticed that there appears to be an increasing number of residents subletting their properties on short term lets ie. airbnbs, which have been identified across the estate

Please note that Short Term Letting is not permitted under any circumstances and is a breach of the terms and conditions outlined in your leasehold or tenancy agreement.

L&Q take this sort of activity, very seriously and we will be investigating and taking the relevant action against any residents who are suspected of doing this.

We will be monitoring this very closely and also would ask residents as a whole to be vigilant to any incidents that they may feel be in relation to this.

Short Term Letting is likely to impact other residents, this includes Anti-Social Behaviour – including noise nuisance, damage and mistreating of communal areas, which is quite unfair for other residents.

If you have any questions about this please feel free to contact your Neighbourhood Housing  Lead in the first instance.

 

Update from PCM

Dear Residents,

Please see message below from PCM.

 

It has been brought to our attention by some residents that there doesn’t seem to be a reasonable grace period for vehicles to drop off/pick up within a few minutes. We have taken this viewpoint to our parking operator and have agreed the following with PCM, effective immediately. Any vehicle parked in a restricted area will now be allowed a 5 min ‘grace period’. Photographic evidence will be taken of any vehicle showing a 5 minute observation period before enforcement action is taken. This will allow for residents to have a short period to drop off/pick up. Any vehicle that is evidenced to have parked for longer than the agreed 5 min period, and has been issued with a parking charge notice (PCN) will have to either pay or appeal the charge. L&Q will not get involved or intervene with such disputes. We hope this will afford for residents to use this short period to drop off/pick up without receiving a PCN but also for PCM to enforce restricted areas for vehicles that park for extended periods. ‘

 

Update on Seagulls Issue

 

Hello Resident,

 

We are aware that there is an ongoing issue with seagulls, particularly during the spring and summer months.

We have looked into putting something in place to help prevent this  ongoing issue and spoken with a number of our Pest Control Contractors. They have advised the following at this stage:

Gulls nesting on buildings in London are likely to be either Lesser Black Backed Gulls or Herring Gulls. Both are protected species so therefore we have to ensure that we are using legal methods in tackling the issue.

Wild gulls in the United Kingdom are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. While they may have become far more numerous in our towns and cities, many species have declined dramatically in their natural habitat. As such, it is illegal to kill, catch or injure wild gulls in the UK without a permit.

Crucially you have to be able to provide evidence of significant harm that the birds are causing. NOT nuisance, but harm. Anything less than that will mean that you will not be granted a licence, which would be a requirement.

 

Due to the regulations in place for this we are currently exploring some alternative options that we hope will be effective in deterring them from the estate.  We understand this is something we need to have place as soon as possible and so therefore we will continue to keep  residents updated with our plan of action regarding this.

 

Christmas Tree Disposal and Collection

 

Dear Resident

We would like to inform residents that if you have any Christmas Trees that need to be disposed, these should be left outside of your block, ensuring that it is not causing any obstruction. Caretakers will be be picking them up on a daily basis placing them in storage ready for collection from Newham.

Can residents please ensure that any trees they want to be disposed are left outside by their blocks by midday Wednesday 11th January 2023.  Failure to dispose of your tree ahead of this arranged collection will require residents to arrange their own collection.

If L&Q have to arrange disposal of these then this will be chargeable back to residents.

If you have any questions regarding this please contact your Neighbourhood Housing Lead.

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

 

 

 

Reminder about Bulk Waste Disposal.

Dear Residents

We are seeing a lot of bulk items being left in bin stores and residents are not following the correct procedure in regards to the disposal of bulk items.

 

PLEASE NOTE  You can book collection of bulky waste via Newham’s Website.  Once this has been booked you can place any bulk items in the bin store, however a note must be applied on your items with a reference number & date to prove you have reported this to Newham Council to pick up.  Failure to do this will result in your Neighbourhood Housing Lead raising a communal job for bulk rubbish to be collected and this charge would be paid by ALL residents under communal charges. To prevent issues regarding this, please follow the correct procedure.

 

We will also be checking for offenders via CCTV and further action will be taken if we identify that L&Q residents are dumping bulk items without following the correct procedure.

 

If you have any further questions regarding this please contact your Neighbourhood Housing Lead.

 

Thank you for your co-operation on this matter.
