The new board of the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation has been revealed after a constitution change forced a mass resignation.
Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation(TMO) met last Monday for its first full meeting since a change in its constitution was made. All the previous members of the board has been made to stand down in November until fresh elections were held in a bid to rebuild the under-fire association.
Throughout 2008, angry residents challenged the controversial housing association - which manages the majority of council housing in Kensington and Chelsea including the Trellick Tower - in a series of turmultuous extraordinary general meetings indended to oust its leadership.
At the meeting last week, former board chair Juliet Rawlings MBE, from Cremorne Estate, Chelsea, was re-elected as chair. Slyvia Collet and Ben Cann were elected vice chairs.
Other elected members of the board are Kathy Harris, Reg Kerr-Bell, Jules Montero from World's End Estate, Iain Smith, and Anthony Ward.
A contingent of Royal Borough councillors are also board members. They are: Redcliffe ward's Cllr Elizabeth Campbell, Golborne's Cllr Emma Dent Coad (Labour), Cremorne's Cllr Maighread Condon-Simmonds and recent addition to the council Cllr Quentin Marshall.
Three independent members of the Board were also appointed. They are Peter Chapman, Ian Doolittle and Margaret Doyle.
Ms Rawlings is determined that it is time draw a line under the events of 2008, which shook the organisation to its core. She said: "We have a new constitution and a new start and I am delighted to be chairing the new board.
"I hope that the problems we suffered in 2008 - caused by flaws in the old constitution - are now behind us and we can prove to our tenants and leaseholders, as well as the council, whose properties we manage, that we are now a steady organisation that can maintain and improve services to residents. It is time to move on."
