In 1996 the residents of CTR Triangle Estate (Cliff Walk, Radley Terrace, Trinity Gardens) claimed the legal right to manage our homes and formed a Tenant Management Organisation (TMO), starting with 223 properties and expanded in 2003 with the addition of 68 properties in Avondale Court. The TMO gets an allowance from London Borough of Newham Council to carry out Housing Management, cleaning, grounds maintenance (gardening) and day to day repairs.
Since 1996 when the TMO was set up, our services have been provided by contractors.
The TMO is directed by a team of thirteen volunteer board members who live in the community and care about providing a good service for the community. Members of the board work tirelessly to ensure that residents receive the best possible service that is value for money. They are also a voice for residents and the community.
Each year the TMO organises Seaside Trips, Fun Days, Street Festivals and other activities for residents.
We would like to increase the TMO membership and invite all residents to get involved in participating and supporting the TMO. If you would like to be a TMO Member, please contact the TMO manager or head over to our Getting Involved page to download the form. The life membership fee is a one-off payment of 10 pence.
A Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) is a means by which council tenants and leaseholders can collectively take on responsibility for managing the homes they live in, whilst remaining as tenants of the council. Subject to a ballot and various safeguards, the Right to Manage gives council tenants the right to choose this rather than continue to have their homes managed by the council.
TMOs are non-profit membership organisations, run by an elected tenant led management committee. TMOs enter into a management contract with the landlord to carry out specified duties, such as caretaking, lettings, tenancy management and rent collection.
