For you

    Alice Shepherd House and Oak House
    The independent stock condition survey carried out in late 2017 suggests that Alice Shepherd House and Oak House is an area that may benefit from change. This seems to be supported by the feedback One Housing has received from residents both during our day-to-day work as a landlord and through the resident events we have held in 2018. Both blocks suffer from long standing maintenance issues that will be difficult to fully repair without considerable and invasive work to the entire building. Residents have also told us that they have ongoing concerns about anti-social behaviour and security.

    What happens next?

    One Housing would like to start a conversation with the residents living in these blocks to better understand their experience of living there. This could then lead to a conversation about change.

    Setting up a resident steering group is the first step in starting that conversation and it is essential in making sure that the resident’s voices are heard.

    We are pleased to be working with your local residents’ associations to set this up, and I would encourage anyone who is interested both in representing their community and the future of their homes and neighbourhood to consider putting themselves forward.

    What is a steering group?

    A residents steering group is a group of residents elected by the local community to represent their views and opinions .

    The steering group is there to ensure the voice of the residents is at the heart of anything that One Housing does in relation to Alice Shepherd House and Oak House and being a member should be both a challenging and very rewarding experience.


    Are you interested in becoming a member of a steering group to guide the future of Alice Shepherd House and Oak House?

    The St John’s TRA will be hosting a meeting in early December for anyone who is interested in being on the steering group to discuss what will be expected of those who volunteer.
