Hi @jools, thanks for your message and apologies for any disruption caused. Unfortunately there was an emergency issue regarding a collapsed drain over the weekend and this needed to be rectified as a matter of urgency. We informed Newham Council and were granted permission to carry out the work.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents but unfortunately the nature of the incident meant this was not a piece of work that could wait until after the weekend.

Hi. Glad there was an important reason for the work this time, and hope it got fixed up.

Thanks for replying so quickly

@ChobhamManor
Would you mind responding to the racist sign writing on your site - shed in storage area next to sales building with “No Tools Gypo” scrawled on it in large letters

I believe that this would be counted as a “hate incident” (as opposed to “hate crime”) by the police.


#187

Dear @jools, thank you for drawing this to our attention. We can confirm that the sign has been removed and would like to apologise unreservedly, this clearly should never have happened. We do not tolerate racism, hate crimes or the use of offensive language and we will be taking action to ensure that this is reiterated to everyone working at the development and that appropriate action is taken against the perpetrator should they be identified. Once again we apologise unreservedly.

Has anyone from L&Qs shared ownership scheme moved into Chobham Manor yet?


#189

There are residents in Phase 1 that purchased shared ownership properties from L&Q and moved in roughly 2016/17


#190

Hi Courtney, thanks for your question. L&Q’s shared ownership homes on phase 1 at Chobham Manor were occupied in 2016. Shared ownership properties on phase 2A are all sold and due for occupation at the end of February 2019 with further shared ownership units on phase 2B due to be completed before summer 2019.

I hope that helps - please let us know if you need any more information.

@ChobhamManor There are places marked for commercial purposes but no single commercial spot has been opened in the chobham manor development. e.g the one in front of the velopark. Is there any plan to open commercials places like shops, Cafés…
Thanks


#192

An office/training space for cosmetics firm Yon-Ka Paris is due to open at the bottom of Burnell House and we have been told that a mini supermarket may be opening at the bottom of Nolan Mansions (corner of Honour Lea Avenue and Peloton Avenue)


#193

Thanks @Odie
It’s great to hear a mini super market is coming


#194

Hi @Buni, thanks for your question, and thank you @Odie for stepping in to answer.

I can confirm that one of the commercial units at Chobham Manor has been let to cosmetics firm Yonka and is due to open in the spring. Further units are currently on the market to let. The nursery school space is also on the market and we are expecting tenders of interest shortly.

We’ll update residents via the Chobham Manor newsletter and website as details are confirmed.


#195

Thanks @ChobhamManor
On which block is the nursery place


#196

Hi @buni, it’s part of Block 3E-A.


#197

Is anyone else in the process of buying the shareownership house in phrase 2B? How is it going?


#198

hey evan, I am… being told April for now…


#199

Hey @Courtney_Brooks have you exchanged the contract yet? After the search, our solicitor said the building has flooding risk (we are in the ground floor). Our solicitor is still waiting for L&Q to reply this issue…


#200

nope not yet… taking a litlle longer for me cos im selling at the same time


#201

Hi @Evan and thank you for your message. Your solicitor should hear separately from L&Q. However, we’d like to reassure you that the flood risk assessment for the Chobham Manor development confirms a low risk of surface water or groundwater flooding. We can also confirm that work was carried out prior to construction of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to alleviate any potential surface water flooding of the site.


#202

@ChobhamManor Thanks for getting back to me! How likely do you think it is that the expected completion time for phrase 2B (around the end of April) will hold?
Thanks
