Recent media coverage has highlighted concerns about access to community spaces.
Chris Harris, Executive Director of Customer Services, said, “We are aware of concerns raised about access to the gardens at the rear of 313 and 317 Essex Road. We want to do the right thing. We are actively liaising with the local authority and we are engaging with our residents to ensure that we resolve this to everyone’s satisfaction.
