Heading: Coronavirus (COVID19) – 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 (COVID19) – 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 [email protected] 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 (COVID19)
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 COVID-19, please visit: –
As it important that we are all kept up to date about the spread of COVID-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 COVID-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: Car Park Allocation
Details: We have had reported incidents whereby people are parking in spaces other than those allocated to them.
Please note that as per the terms of the lease, you are authorised to park one vehicle only in your designated parking space.
Full details on your space allocation can be found within your lease documentation. For tenants, you may wish to contact your letting agent and / or your landlord for this information. If you do require further clarification then please forward a copy of your lease to [email protected] who will confirm your car park space allocation number.
For occupants with more than one vehicle, then you will need to make alternative arrangements to park your second vehicle off site. You are not permitted to park more than one car at the development.
