Deepcut public meeting - 24th Feb 12The Deepcut redevelopment public meeting attracted huge numbers of local residents from across the Borough last night. Deepcut Village Centre hosted the event and reached maximum capacity of 300.

Some local residents and Borough and County Councillors were denied access to the venue but windows and doors were opened so that residents outside could hear proceedings.

During the event residents from outside the venue could be heard shouting views so that those inside could hear.

Chair of the Deepcut Liaison Group Angela Mitchell said “We are really very sorry for those residents who wanted to attend the meeting but could not due to the venue reaching capacity. We were advised by Surrey Police that approximately 200 people were outside the venue. The response has – been astonishing and to get 500 people to a public meeting on a Friday night is unprecedented. In my view this shows how strongly local…

Peverel will soon be a thing of the past

Very soon we will be free from the grip of Peverel and we can begin the work of restoring our wonderful community to its former glory.

What does the removal of Peverel mean to you?

For me it means not getting dozens of emails every week asking me to escalate an issue because Peverels call center have note returned a call or an email.

It will mean that buyers and sellers will be able to complete more quickly. It has always struck me as scandalous that Peverel can charge an extortionate admin fee for confirming management fees are up to date and writing a letter to that effect but taking months to do so.

It will mean that issues will be identified and rectified before a resident has chance to even spot the issue in the first place.

I am utterly sick to the back teeth of Peverel. What is a shame is that our current estate manager, Adam Sheehan is actually a good bloke. Unfortunately he reports to people who are useless and works for a company that clearly do not give him the tools to do his job.

Astonishingly, Peverel are the largest property management agents in the UK. One would think that with all the money and resources at their finger tips they could get a grip.

I have found out recently that Peverel were the managing agents for the Atrium in Camberely. They have been booted out from there. It’s not even 2 years old is it?

Once we have finally had everything handed over I will be organising a celebration drink. Just a beer over at Pine Ridge. Anyone up for it?
