Pollards Hill Arcon Bungalows

From the minutes of the
Housing Committee
22nd June 1965

695. Notices to Quit. – The Housing Manager reported that (a) there remained at Pollards Hill seven occupied Arcon bungalows which had to be cleared by the 29th September 1965; and b) the rehousing of the tenants was proceeding, but he felt that the time was approaching when all remaining tenancies should be formally terminated by Notices to Quit as a precaution against any last minute difficulties in rehousing.

Resolved – That authority be given for the the service of Notices to Quit accompanied by an explanatory letter.
