Coronavirus

We had heard that RBKC intended to do non-emergency work on their housing estates during the epidemic.  The Chelsea Society believes that this should be restricted to exterior work,

We are pleased to hear  from Cllr. Kim Taylor-Smith that the Council “will only undertake emergency repairs or essential fire safety work (required by the Government) where absolutely necessary and where the resident  agrees. The safety of our residents and operatives is absolutely paramount and during this time, we have implemented a number of protocols that enables work to completed safely. Ultimately, this includes a protocol to carry out works in properties that are occupied by residents infected by the virus where protection to individuals is critical.”

“The Housing Management team are under incredible pressure and working at full stretch during this crisis, principally contacting and supporting the most vulnerable and they. They have now spoken to over 1,000 residents over the age of 70 in the most challenging circumstances and like other essential service workers, deserve our upmost thanks and respect.”
