A website & blog for residents (and neighbours) of Dalston Square

Last Of 2012

Hello all, one last post before year’s end. Firstly, we have a date, venue, and agenda for the next general meeting of the Residents’ Association. Thursday, 10th January, 7.00pm, in the meeting room of the C.L.R. James Library here on the Square. As always, the meeting is open to all residents of the Square, renters and owners alike, and will likely last for 90 mins or so. The agenda is as follows:

1) The Residents’ Association – Who is it? What has it achieved? Where next?

2) Consort service charges, present and future – Value for money?

3) Planning applications for the Square – Issues of common concern.

4) Right to manage initiative (changing the management company) – Progress report.

5) Progress on our ‘good neighbourliness’ campaign – Improving the quality of life in and around the Square.

6) Any other business.

Next up, an update on the public space of the Square itself. I am sure I am not alone in welcoming the opening of the next section of the Square this last Thursday. The hoarded section in the middle of the newly opened area is an electricity sub station that will be moved in the new year and so that will soon disappear. The area of grass is also temporary: This is what will become the children’s play area, but it extends slightly beyond the new hoarding line into Barrat’s site hut area and so has been turfed as a temporary measure. When Barrat open up the last section of the Square next spring, the grass will be removed and the play area constructed. Also coming in the spring is the water feature. Comprised of 9 synchronised water jets the feature is already in place (you can see the 9 metal discs, the jets, embedded in the paving) but will not be turned on until after the winter weather is behind us. Barrat’s latest estimate for completion of the public space is June 2013.

Just one last thing to say….

Merry-Christmas
