Two Enfield Councillors, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Cabinet Member for Housing and Cllr Achilleas Georgiou, Deputy Leader did a tour of the security of Curtis House in Southgate last week, and gave the new security door the seal of approval.

Accompanying them was Stewart Holton, the new Chief Executive of Enfield Homes, and Chris Martin, Enfield Homes's Head of Repairs and Maintenance.

During inspection the new extra strong front door, which was completed two weeks ahead of schedule, and which boasts toughened glass and strong magnetic locks was tested. The side stairs door was also examined, and both doors passed with flying colours.

Tenant Bernardo Santos who saw the technical examination said he was happy with the new doors, and remarked that since both doors were fitted there had been no problems.

Enfield Homes had arranged for their outreach van to be on site during the week, so that if there were any remaining problems with the reprogramming of any key fobs residents could have them reprogrammed on the van. All tenants were notified of this by letter.

Any residents who did not visit the van can visit Enfield Homes at their base at Edmonton Green.

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Cabinet Member for Housing said "We have listened to the concerns of our tenants and acted quickly to help secure Curtis House.

"This new security door is extremely strong, with tough magnetic locks, and cannot be forced open. We also arranged for the Enfield Homes outreach van to come here quickly so that any tenants who had remaining problems with their key fobs could have them fixed.

"If any residents have any other issues with security we want to hear about them, and we will do all we can to resolve the issues."
