That will be great if that comes off, though hopefully it won't take them the whole 5 years.
The jetty there has been used in the past as a temporary stop for the Clippers when the DLR was out of action.
That was in the days before we had the option of replacement busses.

They claim a thames clipper stop will be part of the development as well

Thanks Peter for all your hard work on the site, I do think a bit of advertising in some form would be a good idea (sadly haven't got any brilliant ideas at the moment) as loads of tenants seem to be blissfully unaware of this very useful facility.

The eternal issue.  Few of the residents are owner occupiers I think, and this is part of the reason why not enough people care about our community.

Thank you Rosie.  There is actually a Facebook group for VQ.  Pretty quiet though.

There was a RA for the whole estate, it was extremely hard to set up, took 3 attempts, and then collapsed after a year or so.

Setting up a RA for individual blocks is the way to go, as Settlers Court has done.

Thank you for all you are doing to keep this forum going - it's a wonderful site for finding latest VQ news and recommendations. I wonder if you should consider supplementing it with a FaceBook group (private) just for VQ residents to comment & contribute on live matters. I've never understood why we don't have our own "Residents Association" so this forum is really the only voice we have - so thank you!

Hi all
I live in Susan Constant so I'm partially insulated from undesirable Reuters developments but some people are not so lucky. Just thought I should warn people there is a planning application at Tower Hamlets now (couldn't find it myself) for 'Backyard Cinema' /https://www.backyardcinema.co.uk/ with an alcohol license to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Apparently you have until Aug 18th to post a complaint

Have you checked the classifieds? Sometimes apartments And houses get posted for sale there. 

You could alway copy this post in that forum.
