The Charities are looking at how they might increase the speed that the bungalows are refurbished. At present the Charity waits until a property is empty as a tenant or resident moves on, but this has not allowed proper planning or efficient work.”

Because of this, a small working party was formed to look into how this situation could be improved.   As a result of this, the Trustees propose to submit a planning application to refurbish the garages in order to build two chalet style bungalows on site.  The proposed new bungalows will be two bedrooms with one bedroom on the second floor to accommodate visitors.

The Charity welcomed three new tenants to the site in September of which two are Watermen and  Lightermen.  We wish them much happiness in their new homes.
