Major Works Programmes: Presenting Our Concerns to Mayor John Biggs

Scaffolding at 21-35 Old Market Square since May 2018.

Earlier this week representatives of the CTRA met with Mayor John Biggs and Cllr Danny Hassell to present our concerns about the ability of Tower Hamlets Homes Asset Management Team to deliver multi-million-pound major works programmes.

Following our evidence and case-study based presentation we reiterated our call of last year for an independent inquiry into the organisational management of major works. We also requested an independent review of spending across our block major works programmes to check for waste and inaccuracies and made a series of service improvement suggestions.

We now await a response from Mayor John Biggs.
