Amazingly it’s now five years since the residents of the Roman Way Estate voted to have their estate managed by a Tenant Management Organisation (TMO). And therefore it is now time for a reballot to ensure the residents wish the TMO to remain in place.
Last night there was a barbecue and entertainment event by Thirlmere House which Cllr Fergus Robinson and I attended – where residents could find out more about the TMO.
Staff and TMO officers were on hand to answer residents’ questions about how the TMO works and to show off some of the many successes they have had – eg: in carrying out repairs first time and speedily (often using their own estate based team), estate regularly litter picked, appearance of estate enhanced, etc.
The ballot papers were also sent out yesterday – along with full instructions as to where to return the ballot.
The result will be announced at the end of September.
