NO HOMES FOR GRENFELL SURVIVORS? HOW ABOUT THE 150 FLATS ON SUTTON ESTATE?

Henderson, Denman, Barshall...oh, and Monty
Residents of Sutton Dwellings in Chelsea love their homes. It's a pity that love is unshared by Affinity Sutton, the greedy and disgusting housing association run by £300,000 a year housing manager, the weird Keith Exford.



Everything so wrong with this country is manifested in the salary paid to Exford: twice that of the PM!

Fortunately, Exford is up against Andrew Barshall and Ian Henderson. 
Their brilliant defence of the Dwellings is a strategy masterpiece.
Please read this excellent report LINK

Messrs Henderson and Barshall stood as Independent candidates last time around. Let's hope we see them standing again.

    Outrageous. Are RBKC councillors unable to force Affinity Sutton to put their estate in good order?
    Or are the councillors colluding with the developers?

    2. And we all know what happens when a Conservative Council colludes with developers , Grenfell, in my opinion .

  5. It seems that the application to demolish and replace with yet more'luxury flats' was refused - so some sense at least. Affinity Sutton are however appealling (read the piece!) . They must be stopped and the empty flats reinstated and filled with people who really need them. Come on Dame do your bit!

  6. Do they ever stop.

  7. There should be fined for letting these fine properties fall into this condition . Where is Saddiq Khan ?

  8. Now that Elisabeth Campbell is in charge, I'm sure she'll get on top of this as efficiently as she dealt with her previous responsibilities.

  10. Sensible suggestion, and why not open Maxilla Nursery too?

  11. Official vandalism of forcibly emptied social housing is the norm. On Wornington Green scores of very solid, good homes were stripped of baths and sinks and wrecked by contractors to prevent people living in them. So homeless people lived in the gardens instead while mice and rats took vacant possession. Those homes stood empty for 2 or more years. When they were demolished the estate was flooded with evicted rats and mice. Those well built and spacious homes have been replaced with shoddy little - and I do mean little - units that are falling apart months after being built.

  12. Who is the legal owner of this Estate? If RBKC, it has statutory powers to get things moving, due to extra-ordinary circumstances. However, a good INDEPENDENT oversight is necessary, in order that the mess does not get any bigger.

    1. It is owned by Clarion, a merger of Affinity Sutton and Circle Housing. Under CEO Keith Exford they see themselves as house builders and no longer as a housing association.

    2. Lining their own pockets !

    3. You know RBKC can buy it back. They have millions in reserve.

    Who is leading all of this and who is profiteering out of it?

    Circle Housing has Just merged with Affinity Sutton to Create 'Clarion '. It is quite clear both from the attached article and the behaviour of Affinty Sutton, that neither are fit to run social housing . All Social housing stock that these companies received under 'stock transfer ' need to be handed back or taken over by residents or directly from the local authority . The bodies that received these properties have changed their business model's and as such are no longer ' social housing providers ' or housing associations ' but property developers , who are now exploiting the tenants and assets they received for 'NOTHING '. Why would this lot be allowed to have any sort of redevelopment in RBKC after the awfulness of Grenfell . Its time for Political Parties to get this on the agenda and expose these charlatans for what they really are 'asset strippers '. And finally what exactly did Keith Exford get his Knighthood for ' the trashing of Social Housing '

    2. Hands is too busy in Kazakhstan wooing despots who kill their workers in cold blood and are very friendly with Tony Blair. He has remained schtum about Sutton estates from the beginning we know where his feelings lie. Not good when he is London minister and this is happening in Chelsea borough.

  17. He should know about this , thats' his job .

  18. ' Hands Off ' - like most of the Conservative's .
