Many local residents have been in touch to ask, or express concerns about, the conditions in these blocks, and the effect of the delay in the regeneration programme.

Cllr Grahame and I attended the meeting a few weeks ago and heard complaints about

  • the state of the blocks, including issues with the lifts
  • cleaning and rubbish in the area, including some of the communal areas.
  • problems with boilers/heating and hot water.
  • lack of communication about progress of regeneration

I have been very concerned for many years about these blocks (as have your councillors), especially regarding what would happen to them if there were to be delays to the planned development of the area. These fears have been realised to some extent as the dates have slipped.

I thought it would be useful to get a clearer picture from you about what you think, and what concerns you may have, so here is a short survey to gather your views.

As a regular traveller myself, I share the concerns about the appalling state of the upholstery. Here’s the latest update from Tfl:

Dear Karen, 

Thank you for your email on 9 June about the refurbishment of our Bakerloo line trains.

We do have 36 trains on the Bakerloo line, with seats being changed at 3 or 4 carriages at a time (we have the equivalent of 7 trains completed so far). All carriages are to be completed by the end of the year. 

As well as a plan to also improve the ambiance of the carriages over the next few years, by 2020 we will have installed wheelchair bays in selected carriages and destination displays for our customers.

At the end of this month Mark Wild takes over as Managing Director and I know he is very keen to see an end to the old seating on the Bakerloo line. 

Yours sincerely,

Managing Director
