We will present an overview of the committee’s work, highlighting past, present and future proposals for the development. H&P will also deliver their report on a variety of management topics and a representative from Hyperoptic will present a Q&A session on this product. The minutes of last year’s meeting are now available and copies will be available for collection from the Concierge office.

Should any owner be unable to attend, we urge you to complete the Proxy Voting form (on the cover letter from H&P) and return it to us either by post or by hand as advised on the form. It is vital that this is received prior to the meeting to ensure that your vote is cast and enable the meeting to go ahead with the appropriate quorum as per the deed of conditions. If you return a proxy form and subsequently attend, your proxy will be returned to you upon registration at the door. As per the deeds, item 8.2.3. a quorum of 20% is required from attending proprietors or their proxies, should this not be achieved a decision will then be made by the Property Manager, whether or not to allow the meeting to go ahead. We urge everyone to attend or ensure that your proxy vote is exercised. Please note that it would be helpful if you could provide identification or quote your plot number at registration.

Due to time constraints on the evening, time available for questions is always short therefore we have enclosed a Comments form which we would encourage you to complete. We will endeavour to deal with all pre-advised questions first. All documents can be returned to Hacking & Paterson at the above address, an envelope is provided for your convenience. Alternatively you may post into the post box located outside the Concierge office in the basement or you may hand to one of the committee members.

Hyperoptic: Installation time

Posted on: August 23rd, 2015 by admin No Comments


The cabling is now installed in several apartments throughout our buildings and the system will be going live just as soon as everything has been checked and tested.

If you would like to see some photos of a typical Hyperoptic installation have a look at our Facebook page. In this case the router was placed in the utilities room.

But this is just one of many options. You might choose to have the router installed in your hall, lounge or in your bedroom. The choice is yours so why not call for an appointment while the installer is still on site.

Hyperoptic: We’re there!

The good news is that you can pre-order and make an appointment to have the cable brought into your flat. Once you have your appointment set a service engineer will visit and install your cable and router. To get the ball rolling visit Hyperoptic's website and take advantage of the discounts on offer.
