Loss of heating at Kelson House, Isle of Dogs

We're aware of the heating failure at Kelson House. Unfortunately we're unable to access the plant room to fix the boiler due to a health and safety risk in the room. Works to make the plant room safe will be completed on Tuesday 23 October, we will then access the room on Wednesday 24 October to remedy the boiler. 

We are providing temporary heaters to all households but we need to limit this to two per households. Please contact us on 0300 123 9966 to request these and we will deliver these to you as soon as possible.  

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused and continues to cause.

    Steve Douglas, Co-Chief Executive of social housing consultants Altair Ltd and former Chief Executive of the Housing Corporation, is joining One Housing as its new Chair.

    Steve joins a recently strengthened Board and a newly appointed Executive Team, including Richard Hill who became Chief Executive in late 2017.

    A well-known figure in the housing sector, Steve brings years of experience including a range of senior regeneration and development positions and leading two other housing associations as Chief Executive (Spitalfields CHA and Asra Greater London). In his current role at Altair he works on projects as diverse as organisational governance and regulatory reviews to coaching and mentoring of senior executives. As Chief Executive of the Housing Corporation he was responsible for an £8.4bn three year budget to deliver 155,000 affordable homes and for regulating England’s 1,500 housing associations.

    His commitment to housing and communities is well known within the housing sector and he has been a passionate advocate for creating a more diverse and accountable leadership within housing throughout his career.

    Commenting on his appointment he said: “I'm delighted to join One Housing as its new Chair. It is a significant housing and care social business, with a major stake in a number of communities. In a world that now has great opportunities for housing organisations to play an important role in services to tenants and residents; building new homes; and supporting communities, it's great to be part of One Housing on the next stage of its journey”.

    Steve will replace long-standing Chair Anthony Mayer who announced his retirement from the role earlier in the year having served his maximum six year term.
