Rayleigh and Wickford MP backed residents of a local home during a stormy meeting with their landlords, Sanctuary Housing Association.
Following numerous complaints about its management, Mark agreed to visit Rupert Jarvis Court, in Hockley, where residents had an opportunity to air their frustration with their landlords, Sanctuary Housing Association, about issues ranging from leaky roofs and poor repairs to fire safety. Mark, who chaired the meeting of around twenty residents, was accompanied by local Hockley Councillor, Eileen Gadson and was also joined by senior managers from Sanctuary, who attended to reply to the residents’ issues.
Speaking about his visit and the associated meeting, Mark said:
“I am pleased that my visit to Rupert Jarvis Court helped give the residents an opportunity to really have their say, in front of Sanctuary bosses. A number of things came out if it, including a promise from Sanctuary of a regular monthly meeting with residents, as a forum to improve communication and help address complaints. I have now also written to the Chief Executive of Sanctuary, Craig Moule, to drive home the residents’ frustrations over the way they have been treated and I hope we will now see some positive changes for my constituents, as a result of all this.”
