LJHA are holding monthly meetings with general needs and sheltered housing residents affected by the ongoing building work, as well as other residents who are interested. Each month, Juliet Bennett, Customer Liaison Manager for Engie, has been answering questions and listening to comments and suggestions.
We didn’t have a meeting in May as the weather meant that we couldn’t meet outside. At the April meeting, Simon Phillips and Juliet Bennett showed residents some photographs of the two blocks, taken when staff and Board members visited the site. We also looked at the architect’s plans for some of the flats in both blocks.
Now that lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease, we are now planning to move to face-to-face, socially-distanced meetings. There will be separate meetings for general needs and sheltered residents.
The meeting for sheltered residents will be on Tuesday 3rd August at 11.00am in the courtyard at Stonegate Way. This is weather-permitting, and we may have to restrict numbers if we need to move inside.
Please contact Simon Phillips for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can’t make it, or want to speak to Juliet, you can contact her between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday on 07813 617601 or at Juliet.Bennett@engie.com
Engie also publish a monthly newsletter for all LJHA residents:
We now have a Questions and Comments Box in the entrance of Stonegate Way for anything relating to the development. You can fill in the form located next to the box, and we will pass your contributions to Engie. Answers will be published in the monthly newsletter. For anything which is urgent, please contact the LJHA office. Due to the need to prevent any risk of infection, you will need to bring your own pen. Or you may want to complete the form at home and then return it.

We currently have a group of residents to help advise on the interior decorations and fixtures and fittings for the new development. Some of the areas to be included are:
- Interior design choices, pictures, décorations etc.
- Fit-out choices (aesthetics and suitability)
- Samples of sockets / light switches etc.
- Light fittings
- Ironmongery options
- Sanitaryware samples and taps
- Kitchen layout
- Flooring for bathroom / kitchens
Although meetings will be via Zoom for the time being, there will be things which we will need to print out for you to look at, and also samples to look at. Hopefully, we’ll be able to organise face-to-face meetings soon.
If you would be interested in being part of this group, please e-mail Simon Phillips at email@example.com or call 0113 8592228
