They are using automated bots. It needs a mod or someone who setup the forum to change the forum settings. Unfortunately that person is awol. Unless you can magically make him return what do you suggest?

Post around them - ignore them as if they didn't exist. I love this org and it's many traits.it would be a real shame if we let them drive us away.

Any good/bad news following the meeting at the Riverside Barn on 7th?

Was it open to the public, I'd have liked to have gone if we hadn't been away.

The meeting was mainly about reassuring residents about the work. Still some misconceptions going around. E.g Fire brigade can only reach 4th floor. Walls will have to come down. All not true and the fire brigade can reach all floors. Many are naturally nervous about such a large project. The meeting was only meant for residents or flat owners.

I am still pretty confident the work will go ahead if the monies are raised. Hopefully if people are struggling they will contact the board/managing agent to let them know. I don't think anyone wants to see people chased by debt collection agencies. Some may even welcome some financial advice.

I note about 7 of these flats are currently up for sale. Great opportunity for someone looking to invest in a property if they have circa 280-290k. The top floors have amazing views.The materials being used for these works are of the highest cladding and insulation quality. 2 bed flats in Walton town centre go way above 300k in the Heart.

Looks like this project may well happen now. I am informed they have collected over 70% of the monies now. With monies expecting to reach 75% by end of the week. So the majority of the flats have come up with the monies. Considering the sums involved here that is pretty impressive. Also considering some of the objections to this project. Especially with Grenfell.

It looks like legal proceedings will start this week against people who have not contacted the managing agent Trinity Estates. If you have not paid and intend to pay you really need to contact trinity asap. Even if you intend to sell the flat. I would not want debt collectors on my door step.

I don't think they need to obtain the full 100% before the works start. The contractor may well take a view that the final monies will be available before the end of the works. Hopefully have some more news in next 1-2 months.

A new horizon for Walton coming to a town in retail shut down.

Apparently 80% of leaseholders have now paid. Solicitors involved now to recover the final monies.

I doubt anything will happen before Christmas. Be a few more months before there is any real news. Hopefully work will start some time in 2018 all being well.
