Today, Monday 15th August 2005, Southwark Council
served notice that it has terminated the
previous management agreement with Tabard Gardens
Tenant Management Co-operative with
immediate effect and is re-assuming management responsibility for the estate.
169 Long Lane
is now an office of Southwark Council
's Housing Department.
What a farce! The interminable bickering at TMC has finally been their downfall. I voted against
the formation of the TMC 10 years ago because I felt it was started by a group of amateurs with no
experience in what they were undertaking. I must admit in the last 2 years things seemed to be
getting better to me, but obviously not. My only contact with them was to moan about the cleaning
and the enforcement of parking permits so probably won't notice any change. I'd love to see a
proper and comprehensive audit of accounts for the last 10 years. I imagine a select few treated
their position as a 'nice little earner'.
