Our Winter Celebration

Drains update November

Update from Andy Eglinton RBG

Hi all,

Just to give you an update following the recent CCTV surveys to the drains across the estate, generally the drain runs are in good condition only requiring cleaning and de-scaling, some minor repairs are required to which I am raising orders for.

I will letter the relevant properties when the order is raised and I speak to Hardy Drainage as to the sequencing of the works.

I haven’t forgotten about the slight leak to the access door in the undercroft at Combe Mews, I have spoken to Hardy drainage who will address the issue when next on site ( imminently ).

Further update from RGB re stairways to all mews properties

20th September 2023

Hi all,

I am writing to you with regards to the concerns that have been raised by some of the residents regarding the waterproofing of the external stairs to blocks 2-20 Combe Avenue, 9-21 Vanbrugh Park Road & 1-19 Combe Mews, this matter has now been referred to our planning department and there will be a revision to the finish of the waterproofing system to ensure that it is more in keeping with the existing concrete appearance.

Once I have more info on this matter I will update you accordingly.



Gutter clearing

A message from Andy Eglinton at RGB re gutter cleaning

Morning all,

The gutter clearance across the estate is now complete, please see below example of before and after photo’s.

Also our contractor The Roof Truss Merchant is going to start the water proof liquid membrane works to the concrete stairs at 1-19 Combe Mews, 2-20 Combe avenue and 9-21 Vanbrugh Park Road on Tuesday 19th September, again I will letter the relevant blocks this week when I have heard back from RTM as to what order they will be carrying out the works, we will make sure that only one staircase is worked on at any one time at each block to allow 100% access.

Kind regards

Staircase repairs

A message from Andy Eglinton at RGB

Morning all,

Just a quick line to tell you we will be rebuilding the defective concrete steps to block 9-21 Vanbrugh Park Road nearest flat 9, the staircase will be blocked off and a small hoarding will be erected around the base of the steps to keep the site safe.

I know this does not directly affect all of you but just wanted to make you aware if you see our contractors on site.

The attached letter will be delivered today to inform the affected block.

Apologies in advance for this temporary inconvenience.

Kind regards
