Lucy Powell MP was delighted to meet residents at Albion Works in Bradford Ward at a special meeting facilitated by Revolution Property Management. Since getting elected in November 2012, Lucy has campaigned in Manchester Central and spoken in Parliament about issues her constituents have raised with housing problems and management of their buildings.
Lucy met with the Committee of the newly formed Albion Works Residents Association before being shown around the site by Association Chair Corinna Ball, who commented “It was our pleasure to meet Lucy and show her the site so she can see some of the issues we are attempting to overcome through forming our association and issuing an action against our landlord with the help of Revolution Property Management”.
Lucy also met local residents at a special public meeting where she updated attendees on her parliamentary campaign to tackle the block management issues faced by residents and leaseholders at the hands of some managing agents.
Lucy says “Housing issues are massive in Manchester Central and came up time and time again during my campaign. I don’t think that problems around housing have anywhere near the national profile that they should have and I am determined to change this.”
“I know that there have been problems in this building for a number of years and it was good to see for myself some of the issues the residents had. I was interested to hear how my constituents feel about current legislation and what they feel are lessons I can take forward to push for changes in practice and policy.”
