Good afternoon Mr Davis,
I have just seen your post and as the council officer responsible for coordinating these consultation events I just wanted to apologise that staff were not available at the advertised time.
I have spoken to the officers who attended the John Harvard drop in session and they confirmed that they got caught up in traffic which resulted in the session starting 15 minutes later than the advertised time of 2pm. To ensure this does not happen again, I have asked all staff involved in these consultation sessions to leave additional time for travel.
I’m sorry you were not able to give the council your views on this important subject; officers are holding over 20 drop in sessions around the borough (including all day Saturday sessions in shopping centres and on high streets) as well attending a further 50 community forums and events, so I hope you will submit your views at one of these or via the online survey https://forms.southwark.gov.uk/ShowForm.asp?fm_fid=897
I’m going to post a separate thread which will contain some background information on this consultation ‘the future of council housing in Southwark’
, other online resources and the full details of the different ways residents can take part.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
