Who may use the car park?

There are only 22 car parking spaces. These are available for use by owner occupiers and on a first come first served basis.  Permits are issued by the Building Manager against a list of owners.  Flat owners, workmen and their visitors may obtain a visitor’s permit for parking in the forecourt by prior arrangement with the Building  Manager and subject to availability. Only one permit can be issued at any time for a flat / leaseholder and only one vehicle for a flat / leaseholder may park at any one time.

There is NO guaranteed right to park for contractors/tradespeople, the contractor space next to the wall may not always be available as communal area contractors such as our gardeners and engineers ALWAYS take priority. Contractors are NOT permitted to park in resident parking spaces.

We regret that there is no parking available for tenants, however as with everywhere in London, meter parking is available in the roads adjacent to the block and, in addition residents may apply to Westminster City Council for a parking permit.

For information on local available parking see Local Westminster Parking

Please note that if a car is parked in the car park without a valid parking permit or failing to clearly display a valid parking permit it is liable to be ticketed by our appointed parking control service without notice; see parking notices displayed around the car park.

And the gardens?Addison House Gardens

The communal gardens are for the enjoyment of all residents and are shared with our neighbouring blocks, Circus Lodge and Elm Tree Court. When using the gardens, please keep noise to a minimum and refrain from playing ball games.  Also, remember that you may be overlooked by the flats facing the courtyard.

What television access is available?

The block has the facility for terrestrial and satellite TV through a common dish/aerial. There are analogue television outlets in all flats through which you can obtain Freeview channels if you have a digital TV receiver or via a Digi Box. We are able to supply cable television on a flat-by-flat basis and in addition, you may also receive pay TV channels though a BT telephone landline. Please contact the House Manager for more details.  Individual TV aerials and satellite dishes may not be erected by tenants.

What about deliveries?

Deliveries may be made to the block providing the flat owner is in-house to receive the delivery. All deliveries must be delivered to the recipients flat, no deliveries will be accepted or signed for by the building manager. Deliveries to the block are made at your own risk

What are the arrangements for recycling and household refuse?

This block encourages recycling and there is a specially marked recycling bin on every floor.  Please put recycling items into one of the recycling bins provided in the middle staircase of each floor. Alternatively if too large or the recycling bins is full you may place your recycling refuse straight into one of the two large black recycling bins near the entrance to the car park.

Please put household refuse in proper bin liners and place into one of the 3 black bins provided in the middle staircase of each floor. Alternatively you may place your bagged household refuse straight into the large silver paladins in the bin area off the forecourt near to the side / car park exit.

For the disposal of larger items such as white goods, flat owners must arrange a collection from the local authority.  Do not leave large items next to bins, near stairs or landings; it is your responsibility to have these items collected for disposal. Please contact the Porter or visit the Westminster City Council Household Bulky Waste page for more information.

And pests?

If you experience any problems with pests please contact the House Manager immediately.  High density living means that pests may not be an isolated occurrence and can spread quickly.  We do not want a single occurrence to become an infestation.  We can all do our bit to minimise the occurrence of pests and that includes keeping our flats as clean as possible.

What about keys?

Keys that are held in the secure key cupboard will not be given out to contractors/tradespeople/estate agents; they are held at your own risk for emergencies only.
