1 Minutes of the Previous Meeting ACTION  

1.1 The minutes were agreed as a true and accurate record. 


2 Matters Arising from the Minutes   

2.1 All the matters arising were to be raised under the relevant item on the agenda.   

2.2 Mike Tyrrell apologised that not everyone had received a set of papers,  but the Council had not provided a list of all ESG members for the mailing because the ESG had not had a chance to agree that LBTH give THCH a list of members. It was therefore formally agreed that THCH should be given a list of ESG members by the Council.  JF  

2.3 PE had agreed to circulate a map of the two estates. CG agreed to send this out in a mailing.  CG


3 Resident Friend Issues   

3.1 The ESG chose First Call as their Independent Resident Advisor. Mike Tilcock and Roman Gawdiak, of First Call, explained what they do and how they have worked successfully in the past on various estates; such as Crossways HA and Wapping ESG. Mike Tilcock suggested that should any of the ESG members be dubious, they should visit some of the previous estates that First Call had worked with. Mike then handed out some information regarding their company, which THCH agreed to distribute to all the ESG members.    

3.2 The ESG agreed that the Chair would agree with First Call some meeting dates without THCH present. AI


4 Tripartite Agreement   

4.1 Julia Farr of LBTH handed out the Tripartite Agreement, which was agreed by the ESG and signed by; Mike Tyrrell of THCH, Mike Tilcock of First Call and the Chair of Mansford ESG, Antonio Irranco. 


5 Agreement of proposed Consultation Timetable   

5.1 The revised timetable was distributed along with the agenda and the other documents relating to the meeting. MT of THCH confirmed that as there were concerns regarding the ability to cover both the Internal & External issues in just one meeting that we would, again, change the dates of several of the upcoming meetings, which was agreed by the ESG. After a number of changes to the proposed consultation timetable, the timetable was agreed as follows:

7.1 MT circulated a paper on the possible timetable for the Show Flat, which THCH hope to commence work on 20th September 2004 and the proposed deadline for the opening of the show flat is on 11th October 2004. As there have been no one-bedroom flats that have become available on Mansford Estate, THCH have requested that the Council allow THCH to use this space for our Show Flat, as well as consulting with all other users of the centre.   

7.2 THCH wrote to Jeff Beven regarding the proposed refurbishment of the centre and whom we would need to contact in order for this to happen. MT said that this would be a perfect example of what THCH can achieve in terms of refurbishment, as the centre already needs several major repairs.
