strong>Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19) – ISOLATION
If you are in self-isolation because you have or may have contracted Covid-19 it is vital that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can contact the rest of the residents to let them know that they should take extra precautions and increase their sanitation and so that, as necessary, we can organise a deep clean of the communal areas in accordance with PHE guidance.
When you contact us, please can you also advise how you are organising deliveries, particularly food, to your apartment and how rubbish is to be disposed of. Please remember: –
- rubbish should only be placed outside of your apartment door at a specific time for collection.
- that whoever is picking up the rubbish should be properly protected.
- that all rubbish must be double bagged.
- rubbish which contains personal waste (e.g. tissues) and cleaning cloths must be isolated within the flat for 72 hours before being disposed of in communal bin stores.
We would also ask that you also let us know if you become aware that any of your neighbours have gone into self-isolation.

Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19) – update
Details: Following government guidelines, all staff for Compass Block Management are working remotely from home until further notice. Please continue to report any block maintenance issues via our online reporting system.
If you wish to speak to a member of staff by phone but are experiencing any problems getting through, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave your name, phone number, first line of your address and a quick summary of your enquiry in order that we may forward onto the relevant member of staff to respond to you.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain services as much as possible during this period.
Heading: Coronavirus (CORVID19)
Details: As you will be aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is spreading across the country and is a cause for concern for all of us. It is anticipated that COVID-19 will cause disruption to all businesses and to our day-to-day lives over the coming weeks and months.
As the government’s guidance is likely to change as time passes, we would like to make you aware we have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to enable us to maintain a level of service during these unprecedented and difficult times.
Our office is currently open, but we have systems in place to allow our staff to work remotely if required. However, in the event that our BCP is put into effect and our office has to close, even with key staff working from home and engineers/contractors in the field, it is highly likely that you will experience some disruption in the services provided due to reduced capability. We will do whatever we can to minimise any such disruption but would ask for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain services during this period.
You will appreciate this is an evolving situation. We will continue to act on the advice provided by Public Health England and will inform you if there is any material change to our business continuity.
For further information and the latest advice regarding CORVID-19, please visit: –
As it important that we are all kept up to date about the spread of CORVID-19, we ask that you inform us immediately if you or if you know of anyone in your apartment block who has either been diagnosed with CORVID-19 or advised to self-isolate. We can then make the other residents and the building service contractors aware of the situation.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Important – For Owners & Residents
To help protect the developments and individual properties during this period, we urge owners to ensure that all their electrical appliances, boilers, heaters, water supply, kitchen and bathroom plumbing are checked and maintained to minimise leaks. For all owners & residents, please ensure that the security of the development is maintained by ensuring the communal doors are shut when entering and exiting the premises. Please also be mindful of your neighbours regarding noise, especially during the day with more people having to work from home during this difficult period.
Heading: Issue with car park gates
Details: An engineer is on his way to attend to the gates at Bishopsgate as they are not operating properly. He is a distance away at the moment so expected to arrive approx 2.00pm.
Details: There have been a number of incidents of late as a result of vandalism at Bishopsgate.
The front door has been repeatedly forced open damaging the magnetic locks, the fire door has been damaged and smashed off its hinges, the building alarm has been set off through misuse and now the pane of glass in the lift has also been damaged and will need replacing.
The costs to repair will exceed our building budget and we understand that this is being caused by tenants living at Bishopsgate.
If anyone has any information on who this is causing these issues, please contact email@example.com or contact the office on 0121 236 5757 – option 2 (please ask for Judy Wyatt) as we wish to recover all costs from those responsible. Please be assured that the source of the information will not be divulged to those we find responsible.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Heading: Bin Store
Details: We have received several reports about residents not disposing of their rubbish correctly in the bins provided. When using the bin store we should be grateful if you would take note of the following points in order to help keep the bin store clean and tidy: –
• All rubbish must be properly sealed in plastic bags, preferably bin liners.
• All rubbish must be placed in one of the paladins provided and not left on the floor. The bin men will not remove any rubbish that is not in a paladin.
• Do not overfill the closest paladin when there are others have plenty of room in them.
• Items such as cardboard boxes should be crushed / collapsed before being put in a paladin.
• You can dispose of your bulky items such as mattresses, fridges, metals at the tip on Bar Road, off London Road CV3 4AN or, for a small collection charge, by contacting the Public Waste Recycling and Disposal Site on 024 7683 3333.
WHEN YOU RE-ENTER THE BUILDING, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU RELOCK THE ENTRANCE DOOR BEHIND YOU.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
