Rules about parking at Addison House and Matters concerning contractors

Car Park: Please note that Addison House car parking is enforced 24/7.

1. Nobody is allowed to park on yellow, hashed marked spaces.
2. Owners are entitled to a parking permit, (one permit per flat) and can park on a first come first served basis. If the owner does not possess a car he/she is entitled to a visitor’s permit, which can be given to visiting guests on a temporary basis. It is not transferable to tenants.
3. Tenants or their visitors are not allowed to park at Addison House.
4. Taxi drop offs are allowed
5. Delivery drop offs: if there is a suitable space available and provided that the car is of a reasonable size in relation to the parking space available, deliveries lasting no more than 5-10 minutes are allowed. However the house manager will use his discretion during his working hours Monday to Friday (09:00-17:00) ONLY, as to whether to allow the person to park or not. No delivery agents are allowed to park in such a way as to obstruct/block the entrance, exit or passage through the car park.

Contractors and Repairs Personnel.

Contractors can park along the wall on the left of the entrance provided that:

1. There is a space available. Contractors for Addison House always take precedence.
2. The vehicle in question is not too long, as the house manager needs to have access through the fire exit in order to dispose of rubbish on a daily basis.
3. A prior appointment to reserve a space along that wall can be made and will be awarded on a “first come first basis”, however HML/Addison House’s contractors will take precedence at all times.
4. Contractor’s vehicles cannot park in resident’s parking spaces. They are simply not big enough to accommodate a van of any size. Should there be a space big enough for a small van then it is left to the House Manager to decide if such a van can park or not.

Contractors: Their hours of work

1. Contractors can have access to flats before 9.00am, however work can only start from 9.00am and no work is allowed after 5.00pm except in emergencies.
2. Working hours are from Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm. Saturdays from 9.00am to 2.00pm and no work is to be carried out on Sundays and Bank Holidays, except for an emergency.

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.

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.

Current social distancing advice should be observed.

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 bin 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 and lockouts; subject to normal access availability during weekday office hours and out of hours availability.
