LADYBRIDGE PARK RESIDENTS CLUB
May- June 2019 Newsletter
MANAGEMENT CHARGES 2019-2020
The Trustees wish to thank all those who have paid their “levy” promptly and in full by the designated date in April. This makes our planning of the work needed so much easier to arrange. If you have been into the club in the past few weeks you will have seen the latest work being undertaken in order to bring every area of the building up to the same high standard.
The monthly standing orders will be starting to be paid on May 1st and this too, ensures that we have a regular income for the next 10 months and can plan accordingly.
We are having several areas painted, toilet facilities to the sports areas and the small hall renovated and retiled and the stage area in the resident’s lounge modified. We realise that there will be some disruption during the refurbishment but hope that you will bear with us and that you appreciate the finished product.
NEW SUMMER OPENING HOURS
Please note that the club will now be open from 2pm each Saturday and Sunday from 1st June to 29th September.
If the weather is kind to us we can all take advantage of the new patio furniture.

REMINDER: PLANNING PERMISSION
In case any of you have had any alterations and/or extensions to your property since moving onto this estate, ALL such work requires planning permission from the Council, as Permitted Development Rights were removed from this estate when it was built. You also need a letter from the Management Company once planning permission has been granted. When you contact the Planning Office you need to be very precise about the alteration you are planning and your full address as some officials are not aware of this restriction on this estate.
You can apply for Retrospective Planning Permission from the Council and permission from the Management Company but it is advisable to do this before the need arises as it could take some time to obtain it from the Council.
Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
Our Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is at present run by Mrs B Bradbury and Mrs L Tansley, who have been operating the group for over three years and took it over to ensure it would continue in our area. They now feel that they have progressed as far as they can and therefore ask for a volunteer to take over and bring new ideas to move it forward.
Anyone wishing to undertake this task, please contact Mrs Bradbury on 0161 374 5364.
