Following on from our recent fire stopping works, further works are planned on 24-28th September to upgrade fire doors in Blocks 1-4. This is being undertaken as part of a number of steps to ensure the development, built in the late 1980s, is compliant with the latest health and safety guidelines relating to fire.
The work will involve replacement of electrical cupboard doors with new doors that meet the latest standards as well as upgrades to the existing block entrance and 1st and 2nd floor entry doors.
There should be minimal disruption to those in the flats although residents may experience some noise during the hours of work (9am-5pm). Houses will not be affected by this work.
PWRA is introducing a new mandatory parking permit system for all residents from this month. This action has been taken as a result of receiving an increasing number of complaints about parking on the development from residents. It will be used to help enforce the parking regulations. Permits will shortly be issued to the owners of all properties and residents will be required to display these on their vehicle or that of any visitor.
Each property will be issued with two permits:
- A resident permit that must be displayed in the window of their vehicle
- A visitor permit to be displayed in the window of any visitor vehicle to the development
Each permit will be uniquely numbered and does not directly identify the associated property for security reasons. A register of assigned permits against properties will be held securely by PWRA in accordance with our data protection policy.
House owners, who have both a garage and driveway space will also be able to request an additional resident permit at no additional charge to use on their second vehicle.
Flat owners will only be issued with the two permits.
In the case of tenants, it is their landlords responsibility to issue them with the parking permits. For security reasons, PWRA will not issue permits directly to tenants without approval from the landlord or their nominated managing agent. The landlord or nominated managing agent will be responsible for ensuring that permits are collected at the end of each tenancy and reissued to new tenants.
There will be a 3 month introductory period (September-November) to allow time to ensure that all residents (including tenants) have received their permits. PWRA will monitor during this time. From December, any vehicle without a permit displayed parking in a visitors bay or not in an approved space may be subject to enforcement action including: parking fines, removal or reporting to local authorities. In the case of vehicle without a permit that are parked in assigned resident bays the respective property owner will be contacted.
Replacement for lost and damaged permits
A small admin fee will be charged to cover lost or damaged permits. Replacement permits will only be issued to property owners or their nominated managing agent.
Conditions of use
The parking permits are exclusively for the use of residents and their invited guests only. It is not permissible to sell, lend or utilise the permits for any form of commercial agreement or financial reward.
