We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to Save our estate offices. More details
CityWest Homes, the organisation that manages Westminster Council’s 21,000 council and leasehold homes is planning massive cuts to its network of estate offices in local communities across the city. Estate Offices at Church Street, St John’s Wood, Little Venice, Westbourne Park, Paddington Green and Charlwood Street. These changes could significantly reduce face-to-face access for residents to their housing officers, causing particular problems for more vulnerable residents, the significant proportion of tenants without regular internet access and for residents not fluent in English. Under the CityWest and Council plans staff will be based out of the existing area service centres, further from the communities they are supposed to serve. We believe CityWest and Westminster Council should think again about their planned cuts to estate offices and if some offices are shut they must commit to having permanent bases in local community buildings so that staff remain in the local area available to meet with residents.
