Ongoing communication with GHA
Thank you for your prompt response on this occasion.
Welcoming your commitment to ensuring that our posters will be put up
in future, we would like clarification on what you mean by requesting
that you see the content of the Tenants' Association notices before
they are put up as we do not believe this to be the case with posters
for other groups publicity that are put up on the notice boards in the
high rise foyers.
We do not feel that it is an accurate representation of events to
state that we have not wished to enter into dialogue with yourselves.
Indeed our previous representations requesting a meeting were not
responded to, nor our letters on specific issues. We would welcome
dialogue between our organisations for the benefit of tenants and
residents in Cedar St/Court.
We would like to move forward to setting a time and date some time
early in the new year for a meeting with yourself in order to discuss
matters affecting residents in the Cedar Street/Court area further. We
propose the Woodside Halls, some evening in the last week in January
as a suitable arrangement. Please can you confirm your availability at
that time, or suggest an alternative timeframe.
The Secretary (Cedar Tenants Association)
