A CLARION CALL TO FIGHT GREEDY CLARION/COUNCIL MEETING 20 JUNE @ 6.30PM


HAPPY RESIDENTS CELEBRATE THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY
LAST WEEKEND

Clarion calls itself a charity yet the only beneficiaries of its charity seem to be the mega paid senior executives who exemplify what Michael Gove described as 'crony capitalism'.
In the previous financial year, Keith Exford was paid close to £370,000 a year and his Executive Board close to £2 million.
One assumes that his successor, Clare Miller is getting, with perks, nearly £500,000 a year. No wonder the Dame is desperate to get her useless nephew, Ludo, into the 'charity business'. For a charity, Clarion seems reluctant to publicise salaries......

Sutton Dwellings sits proudly and happily in one of the world's most expensive areas and that's the only reason why the spivs at Clarion want to redevelop it. The rewards in bonuses for the key Clarion directors will be enormous.
Apart from the residents themselves the most vociferous objectors to Clarion's shenanigans are residents in the multi-million pound houses that surround the estate. 
They know and value the estate for what it is, and for what William Sutton wanted to provide for the poorer residents of Chelsea. The Dame has been shocked by the sheer volume of complaints about this greedy charity. Every expert body, including the Victorian Society, has stated that Sutton Estate is included in the Chelsea Conservation Area. At the full council meeting, the motion put forward by Cllrs Atkinson and Henderson will be debated demanding the Estate be placed in the Conservation Area. 
For months the Leader has told of us that there is a sea change in how the Council listens. 
This debate will be the litmus test of that sea change.


How it ever avoided this protection is a question that needs further research.

Please turn up to the Council meeting and also sign the Petition

    2. Because they can - legally speaking. Greed outweighs morality.

  2. This is so typical of housing associations now. Managed decline, selling off properties at auction saying they are too costliest torepair. Making millions and wanting to join the big name builders making only a a token few shared ownership homes which then become unaffordable due to the unregulated service shares and cyclical maintenance costs. Mega mergers, big pay packs for the board and lack of regard to residents. They would do well to remember their purpose. People before profit

  3. The debate will get nowhere unless the Leader takes the lead and inspires the Councillors

  5. are their any social housing estates in the Conservation area ?

  6. 1 Million on the housing waiting list . 200 empty flats on the Sutton Estate. This is a result of a political decision to get rid of social housing by the Conservatives. Their policy of socially cleansing RBKC is going quite well in their playbook !

  7. If Sutton Trust was built around 1910 and is no longer viable or fit for purpose, surely then, all circa 1900 properties and before, should be condemned like Sutton Estate?

    A good example of what is happening here, is Abercrombie ripping the heart out of Deptford in the 1930's

  8. And on the subject of housing associations:

    2. In defence of the Mail they are excellent at attacking greedy pigs.
      Remember that they were the only paper to attack Pooter Cockell for his excesses at our expense

    3. Didn't The Daily Mail also have a go at Emma Dent Coad for her ignorant comments about Prince Harry's pilot's licence.

  9. Anon-09:55: Ghastly person. I just wonder how many RBKC Councillors secretly clinck a glass or two in celebration of a sordid event?
