City House Cleaning will be attending site tomorrow, Tuesday 20th December, to complete the remaining gutter clearing that our original contract (HJ Tebbutt & Sons) were unable to complete.
Works to clear the gutters will be restricted to the rear of the north-side houses (No. 44-52) and contractors will be on-site during this operation. They’ll be using specialist equipment to access and clean the rear gutters from the ground floor and will require access through each property and to an electrical point. The contractors will wear protective overshoes when walking through each property. These works will be carried from 8:30am.
Our annual gutter cleaning work is due, and a contractor has been selected (HJ Tebbutt & Sons). Works to clear the gutters will commence on Monday the 5th of December, 2022. HJT&S’ contractors will be on-site during this operation. They’ll use ladders and a cherry picker that will be parked on site (North West Corner of the Estate). These works will be carried out daily from 8:30am.
The schedule will be as follows:
Monday the 5th of December: Block 3 & 2
Tuesday the 6th of December: Houses South Side (House 11 – 19)
Wednesday 7th of December: Houses South Side & Block 1
Thursday 8th of December: Block 1 & 4
Friday 9th of December: Houses North Side (House 44 – 52)
Monday 12th of December: Houses North Side (House 44 – 52)
This schedule may vary according to how things unfold. But the plan is to finish by the 12th of December.
In order to facilitate access for contractors:
Some flats on the ground floor may be requested access to back patios to clear the gutters on the east side of the state. The same will apply to the west side of the estate.
House tenants and/or owners may be requested access through their properties.
We will request vehicle owners from the houses to park somewhere else for a working day while contractors carry out the job in each row of houses.
Gutter cleaning is planned for 29th November-2nd December and will be undertaken by contractors from City Housekeeping. We are aware of a number of complaints of gutter blockages issues raised by residents, which will be addressed as part of this work. It has been 12 months since this was last undertaken and was originally expected that such maintenance work would only need to be undertaken annually. Unfortunately, it seems current seasonal weather conditions mean this may need to be more frequently. As such, PWRA will be undertaking 6 month reviews in future.
Work will commence on 29th November on the north side houses (properties #45-#52) moving clockwise around the development thereafter with the river facing blocks next.
In order to facilitate access to guttering in may be necessary to move certain vehicles temporarily so please be on standby. PWRA will contact you directly should this be the case.
Access will also be needed to to the rear of all houses to clean gutters at the rear. The contractors may also need access to an electrical point for their equipment when working on the houses.
As stated in our previous communication essential maintenance works to clean the gutters will commence on the 25th of November. As a result of this, debris and rubbish will fall specially on some parking areas. Contractors also need these areas to be vacated to use ladders and a cherry picker. We therefore ask the owners of vehicles located in the unsheltered areas in the blocks to move them by 8am please.
Blocks 2 and 3 on Wednesday the 25th November (by 8am).
Blocks 1 and 4 on Thursday the 26th November (by 8am).
You can move your vehicle to any of the visitor parking designated areas around the estate. If you have any questions or are struggling to find a temporary space you can contact Roberto Saas firstname.lastname@example.org who is the director coordinating this work.
In response to several reported incidents of blocked gutters, a contractor (Sam’s Gutters) has been selected and maintenance works to clear and repair all gutters on the development will commence on Wednesday the 25th of November 2020.
Two or three workmen will be on site during this operation and all will be complying with government COVID-19 guidance as well as necessary health and safety regulations. This will include use of a cherry picker.
The proposed schedule will be as follows:
Blocks 2 and 3 with a cherry picker and ladders (Properties 20-43)
Blocks 1 and 4 with a cherry picker and ladders (Properties 1-10 & 53-62)
Houses (north side) with ladders (Properties 44-52)
Houses (south side) with ladders (Properties 11-19)
Contingency / completion.
Access to rear of properties
Houses and some flats on the ground floor may be requested access through their property by contractors to back patios in order to access the gutters on the east and west sides of the state. The contractor will be taking appropriate COVID secure precautions but if anyone has concerns and is not comfortable to provide access or is currently self-isolating please email email@example.com
If you are a house occupant, or a flat occupant on the ground floor, we will be in touch shortly on the specific access information required to carry out these works.
According the schedule we request vehicle owners to park somewhere else for a working day while contractors carry out the work. Please utilise the visitor bays in the first instance. If you are unable to locate a suitable space, we will advise you of temporary parking locations.
