Next Resident Project meeting

June 2024

We’re pleased to announce that we are nearing completion of our project, so our next meeting will be the final one for resident project meeting for Eyot House.

We’re working on confirming a date that suits all residents. We’ve emailed all residents that we have email addresses for with a poll suggesting two dates. The date with most votes will be confirmed for the meeting.

Building Safety Fund

Our applications (for blocks A and B, see below) have gone through the technical eligibility criteria for the replacement of the spandrel panels, and it has been confirmed that they meet the legal criteria for funding. The applications will now move to the next stage of the process, which is cost review. Once we agreed the cost with our contractor, we’ll provide them to fund processors. The application status is currently “Eligibility Confirmed”.  As soon as we hear from DLUHC on the next step, we’ll update you.

Block A is the Marine Street postal address, flats 1-52, and Block B the Sun Passage address, flats 53-114.

The Government is publishing updates on how Building Safety Fund applications are progressing in the third week of each month on the Building Safety Fund Leaseholder and Resident Service website pages.

Customers must use a code unique to their building to access the service. We’ve shared this code with customers, which and can be shared again via email [email protected].
