In 2005 the residents of North and South Arden formed a Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) to run the Arden Estate. We receive an allowance from Hackney Council to carry out the cleaning, the gardening, most of the day-to-day repairs; although not central heating; which is still the responsibility of Hackney Council. We do the housing management for the Arden Estate.
The TMO also takes bookings for the Regan Way Community Hall.
There are regular general meetings and once a year a Board is elected to run the TMO. The Board of residents (tenants and leaseholders) meets nearly every month to monitor the repairs, the cleaning, gardening, and the housing management; during these meetings the Board also discusses wider issues and future plans; such as improvement works and social events.
Our constitution can be found here – Constitution.
We actively seek feedback and welcome membership from all the estate’s residents.
We would like to encourage as wide a range of residents as possible to join the TMO and become active, our policy statement is here – EQUALITY AND COHESION POLICY AND PROCEDURE
As well as carrying out the above services we seek to influence the council, work with the police to cut down on anti-social behaviour, and develop partnerships with local groups and organisations to improve the neighbourhood.
