Parking update

New guttering has been installed in the underground carparks. This will catch any lime scale drips that form on the ceilings, protecting the paintwork on parked vehicles.

We remind all residents to check signage for on street parking restrictions and to be aware that some suspended bays are in place. If the signage has a large yellow suspension warning on it, please ensure you read the details before parking. Vehicles parked incorrectly in suspended bays will be ticketed and you will have to pay the fine.

Temperature and humidity study

We are still looking for volunteers to take part in our research project to monitor temperature and humidity in flats at the Chalcots.
