Challenging Southwark Council's repairs service
Ever needed a repair from the council? How long did you have to wait? Was it done to a decent standard?
Following our own walkabout, we reported 11 communal repairs on the Rockingham Estate in one day. We believe our council, and their contractors, are failing to keep our homes safe and secure.
Chaucer Green candidate, John Tyson, says, “As a resident of 6 years on the Rockingham, I know first hand the terrible repairs service we have: weeks and months to get repairs done, poor quality, lack of follow up. As councillor, I’d ensure there was a thorough review, particularly focused on finding failing contractors, and reducing wait times.”
John wrote the petition with the Southwark Group of Tenants Organisations that kept the telephone repair line free to call.
