Heading: External Lights & Flooding
Details: We have been advised that a new pump is required for the basement following the issue they have identified with flooding. They will replace the pump and then address the issues with the lights.
Heading: External Lights
Details: Contractors have been on site. They have identified flooding in one of the key areas so have to address first before addressing the electrical side for the lighting. Obviously once the flooding is all soaked up and the area dried then they will sort out the electrical side.
Heading: Waste Disposal
Details: Circulars are being sent out reminding all occupants to dispose of their rubbish correctly. Waste should not be dumped on top of the bins or on the floor of the bin store area. A letter from Bromsgrove District Council is attached to the circular outlining the difficulties the Council are experiencing.
Heading: Car Parking
Details: A reminder that you must ensure that you and / or your visitors only park within the allocated parking spaces for your company. Failure to comply will result in breach of lease charges being incurred.
We have also been in contact with the Council in relation to the parking on the main road given that vehicles are being parked up close to the entrance to Greenbox and making it difficult to access the car park. We have been advised by the Council that unfortunately there are no parking restrictions in place. They have advised though that if you do experience any problems with vehicles causing an obstruction then you must contact the police.
Heading: Bin Store
Details: Please note that the bin men WILL NOT collect rubbish that is dumped outside of the paladins provided. Please ensure that all rubbish is disposed of correctly. If the paladins are full or there is any issue with the rubbish collection, please do not hesitate to report via our online maintenance reporting system. If we do become aware of anyone that is disposing of rubbish incorrectly then charges will be incurred by that company. Thanking you for your co-operation.
Heading: Car Parking
Details: Further to our recent circular, we understand that there are still issues with occupants not parking correctly. If this situation persists, we will be look to introduce parking enforcement measures. Should we also become aware of “offenders” then breach of lease charges will be incurred.
You and your visitors must not park in any space that is not allocated to your office.
You and your visitors must not park anywhere on the estate roadway shown hatched in black on the site plan overleaf as this can obstruct other vehicles, especially the Emergency Services, from safely accessing all parts of the estate. Whilst this restriction applies to the whole of the estate roadway, it specifically applies to that part of the roadway by Offices 10 & 18 which has been clearly marked out as “No Parking”.
Please note also that only blue badge holders are permitted to park in the disabled bays.
In the event that your allocated spaces are full then you and your visitors must make alternative arrangements off site to park.
Thanking you for your cooperation in this matter.
Heading: Car Parking
Details: Circulars are being sent out to remind all occupiers that you are only allowed to park cars in the parking spaces specifically allocated to your office. You must not park in any space that is not allocated to you. You must also not park anywhere on the estate roadway as this can obstruct other vehicles, especially the Emergency Services, from safely accessing all parts of the estate. Whilst this restriction applies to the whole of the estate roadway, it specifically applies to that part of the roadway by Offices 10 and 18 which has been clearly marked out as “No Parking”. Occupiers must not also park in the designated “disabled bays” unless they hold a blue badge.
We have no wish to introduce parking enforcement measures, but if the situation does not improve, we may have no alternative but to do so. We thank you for your co-operation in this matter and trust that from now on you will only park in your allocated parking spaces and nowhere else on the estate.
Heading: Bins and Waste
Details: We understand that the rubbish is building up and we have made contact with Bromsgrove Council about the situation. They will arrange to meet with Compass Block Management about the situation but have commented that on some occasions they have attended to find that rubbish has been dumped outside of the bins when the bins are empty. Please note that the Council will not collect rubbish outside of the bins. We understand that this may be as a result of fly tipping and again this is an issue being addressed. In the meantime, we have instructed an independent cleaning company to attend to clear up around the bins and make good the bin area whilst the matter is being addressed.
Details: We have been contacted by the Waste Management Dept of the Council to ask all to ensure that sacks of rubbish are placed inside the bins as they are experiencing issues with sacks blocking access to the bins themselves with the bins still having space inside. Thank you.
Details: We understand that the bins have not been collected. We have been in touch with the Council to find out the position and they have confirmed that collection will be resumed.
Heading: Bins & Tree Branch Overhangs
Details: Contractors have tidied up some cardboard that had been left around the paladins and emptied the cigarette bins. They have also been instructed to cut down the tree branches that hang over the bin store.
Heading: Update on block drains / overspill from manhole
Details: Severn Trent Water have been in attendance to clear main blockage and also further blockage located via manhole on Greenbox car park. Severn Trent report that they found a large build up of wipes. Please ensure that wipes and paper towels are disposed of in bins and not placed down the toilets. Thanking you for your co-operation.
Heading: Sewer issue from manhole
Details: Contractors have been on site following reports that one of the manholes is leaking sewerage (coming up via bay 46). The contractors have also checked with the site opposite who confirmed that they were experiencing the same problems. Contractors believe this is a main sewerage pipe issue and therefore Severn Trent Water have been contacted to attend.
Heading: Window Cleaning
Details: Following reports about the condition of the windows, the owner of the cleaning company will be coming out to take a look at the situation. The cleaning company used do use a “reach and wash” facility and are currently scheduled to attend 4 times a year.

Heading: Car Park Gates
Details: We are aware that unfortunately the car park gates are not operating properly. We have booked a contractor to attend as a matter of urgency.
Heading: Red Bins
Details: Please do not use the red bins that are located in the bin area as these belong to the previous waste supplier. Rubbish will not be emptied from these bins. We have asked the previous waste supplier to remove.
Heading: Rubbish Collection
Details: To confirm that rubbish will be collected every Friday weekly. The collection will usually be between 8.00am to 8.30am by Bromsgrove District Council. The bins provided are all general waste bins so no sorting is required. Please dispose of your rubbish in black bags and put then into the bins provided. The following items should not be put into the bins and you must speak with the Council direct about arranging their disposal: plasterboard, asbestos, toxic/non toxic chemicals, MDF, sawdust, paint, oil, office furniture (chairs, desks, cabinets and so forth).

Heading: Bins – further update
Details: We have received confirmation from the Council that they will be meeting our Property Manager on site this afternoon and are looking to start rubbish collections immediately.
Details: We are of the ongoing issue with the bins at Greenbox. We have been regularly chasing the Council to find out what the position is here as we were advised that they would commence collections from the end of January 2018. We note that the bin area is overflowing and we have instructed a cleaning company to clear round the bins in the meantime. We will continue to chase up the Council.
