Meeting on Rents

A meeting of the 4 ex-Crown Estate Residents Associations (Cumberland Market; Victoria Park in Hackney; Lee Green in Lewisham and Millbank in Pimlico) has been arranged to discuss the very high rent levels we are all being charged by Peabody and even higher increases expected year-on-year.

The meeting will be held in Pimlico on Friday, 8th November between 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

Residents from the four estates can discuss current problems and what form of action we might be able to take, possibly, with local elections taking place next year and a General election in 2015, with the aid of local councillors and MPs.

The venue is a short 2 minute walk from Pimlico tube station (Victoria Line from Euston or Warren Street stations) and it’s also on the 24 bus route from Hampstead Road. If you would like to attend and would like more information, please e-mail the Residents Association on cumberlandmarketra@hotmail.co.uk for details.
