Holland Road Tenants and Residents' Association gets off the ground

At the beginning of October a number of residents on the Holland Town Estate came together to launch Holland Town Tenants and Residents' Association.

The meeting was attended by Vassall Ward Councillor Kingsley Abrams and Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey. The meeting sought to find a way that residents of the Holland Town estate in Vassall ward and the landlord Lambeth Living could work together to make the area better.

Councillor Kingsley Abrams said: “Following the collapse of the Tenant Management Organisation I lobbied Lambeth Living to work with the local residents to set up a TRA for this estate. TRAs doe valuable work in bring residents' concerns to the attention of the landlord and getting problems dealt with at an early stage which brings benefits to everyone. I and Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey will be working hard to support the TRA and bring benefits for local people."
