Vote of confidence in BETRA TMO Committee

Published: Monday, 7th August 2017

Residents living in Harold Hill have given a vote of confidence to the BETRA TMO Committee by re-electing them unopposed at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting held in Barnstaple Road.

Chairman, Ken Howson, said: “The last year has been a busy, but very successful one, for BETRA TMO with repairs and Anti-Social Behaviour issues being taken up on behalf of residents in the 216 homes we manage.

“We have also had some very successful events for tenants and their children to take part in. Those community events brought an award from Broadford Primary School for our Events Sub-Committee because of the quality of work they do.

“We are looking forward to a challenging year as we know that Havering Council faces financial pressures which will have an impact on our own budget but we are determined to continue giving a high-quality service within the resources we have available.”

Deputy Leader of Havering Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “We have three Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs) in Havering where the day to day management of the estate is done by an elected committee on behalf of the Council’s Housing Services.

“I am pleased that the tenants on the BETRA TMO estates are so pleased with the work of their committee they re-elected them unopposed at the AGM and look forward to working with them during the next year to provide local people with good quality housing services and support.”

BETRA (Barnstaple Estate Tenants ​and Residents Association) was set up in April 2004 and manages 216 homes and grounds maintenance on behalf of the Council for the Barnstaple Road and Montgomery Crescent estates in Harold Hill.
