We have been asked a number of times by residents about reporting antisocial behaviour. Any instances should be addressed to the Police in the first instance. The Metropolitan Police have recently provide guidance on this matter, including providing a new tool to report instances online:
Where antisocial behaviour relates to a property within Plymouth Wharf, we do ask that residents keep us informed by emailing email@example.com
We kindly ask that all tenants use heavy duty black bags for refuse, this will help reduce smell (all bin stores are experiencing this particularly in the recent hot weather), bags splitting open etc.
We notice lots of small plastic bags are being used to dispose of refuse on sites. Using proper refuse bags will help reduce smell in communal areas that are close to bin stores as well as help reduce flies and vermin.
These can be obtained from all supermarkets or online from Amazon:
The work by Thames Water on installing a water system for Plymouth Wharf at each end of the estate is due to be completed this week between Feb 28th– March 2nd. Obviously this will be dependent on the weather!
The irrigation system is then due to be installed next week starting March 5th. It is expected to take approx. 5 days.
Paviors will need to be lifted temporarily to make links from the top river bed to the middle bed and from the middle bed, at each end and on both sides, to the flower beds. This will not affect anyone’s car parking space but it may be necessary at times to drive the wrong way round the Wharf.
If you cannot reach your parking space at any time please park at either end of the Wharf, or in the Visitors spaces or in a space that you know is empty.
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
The groundworks to support our new garden irrigation system have taken longer than expected and we apologise for the continued parking disruption this has caused some residents.
Thames Water will be onsite 28th February – 2nd March to complete connection of new mains water feed. Following this Rosewater Irrigation will be onsite from 5th March for a week to complete the final installation of the irrigation system itself.
We will post further updates of any expected disruption for week commencing 5th March nearer the time
As a result of a recent enquiry, we have been advised by our insurance company, that our buildings insurance policy does not cover what they class to be short-term or holiday lets (stated as less than 6 months). This would include property sharing sites such as Airbnb.
The reason given is that with a constant change in persons at a location the risk for damage is greatly increased and as such they do not provide cover.
We ask that all shareholders ensure they do not let out their properties under these terms due to the risk of invalidating insurance and that any properties advertised on sites such as Airbnb should be removed at once.
We are currently seeking legal advice to clarify use of such lets in terms of the Lease that governs all the properties in the development. This also does not permit properties to be used for commercial reasons.
Shareholders should ensure that any tenants are also not using such sites to let out a single room or rooms and make sure that any agent acting on their behalf is also aware of this.
Transport for London are seeking views on proposals for a new river crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf for pedestrians and cyclists.
The new crossing is proposed to provide a “safe, attractive and direct route for pedestrians and cyclists, reducing journey times and encouraging more active travel among the growing communities on both sides of the river”.
There will be ground civils works on site at Plymouth Wharf 9th-13th October to install a new mains water supply.
During this time there will be some disruption to the drive and parking areas as brickwork has to be lifted and new pipework laid. PWRA apologises for any inconvenience caused during this time and any directly affected residents should already have been contacted.
This work is being undertaken to prepare for for installation of a new garden irrigation system. This work was outlined to shareholders during the last AGM and report.
