Lambeth Council has ended its agreement with Patmos Area Community Conservation Association (PACCA) tenant management organisation.
Following an investigation by Pricewaterhouse Coopers into its finances and performance, PACCA, which managed 286 homes in Lambeth, was served with a supervision notice by the council in December 2013 which PACCA has disputed.
Following PACCA’s failed judicial review application, at a hearing last month an independent arbitrator has agreed that Lambeth council was correct in carrying out a Special Review and serving the Notice of Supervision on PACCA.
The decision means that as of 6 January 2015, Lambeth Living on behalf of the council , will be responsible for all services on the estate. Residents will be informed and advised not to contact PACCA for any queries relating to the management of the estate.
Cllr Matthew Bennett, Cabinet Member for Housing< said: “I want to reassure residents that any queries or concerns they have will now be dealt with by Lambeth Living.
“We are pleased that this dispute with PACCA has finally come to an end and the council was found to be correct in its actions. Now we can concentrate on the proper management of the estate.”
