Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Arnos Grove

Arnos Grove is situated to the north of London, in the borough of Enfield. It is 7.5 miles from the centre of London. In the 14th century, Armholt was a wood on the western borders of Southgate. Hence the origins of the first name. However, it was later called Arnolds and Arno's Grove. These estate names refer to a "grove or copse of the Arnold family". The Arnolds were local landowners, who are mentioned in documents, dating from the 14th century. 
The Nuns of Clerkenwell owned Arnos Grove. However, King Henry VIII, (r. 1509-1547), dissolved their monastery. From 1536 to 1540, during the Reformation, over 800 monasteries were dissolved. As head of the Church of England, Henry VIII replaced the Pope, renounced Catholicism, and cut off from the Roman Catholic Church in Rome. He ruthlessly ordered the persecution of Roman Catholics. In doing so, he caused a bitter divide between Catholics and Protestants.  
A Tudor manor house was built on the site, but was demolished in 1719. It is thought that James Colebrook was responsible for its demolition; and he built a mansion called Arnolds in Cannon Hill, Southgate. Locals called the estate Arno's. The next owner, Sir William Mayne, 1st Baron Newhaven, (1722-1794), renamed the estate Arnos Grove. Mayne was a British merchant and politician. 
During the reign of George V, (r. 1910-1936), the estate was purchased in 1918, by Andrew Weir, 1st Baron Inverforth, (1865-1955). He created and headed the firm of Andrew Weir and Co. shipowners of Glasgow. Lord Inverforth aimed to develop the Arnos Grove area. He sold 44 acres of his estate to the Southgate Urban District Council, which created Arnos Park in 1928. Other parts were later sold off to property developers. The Arnos Grove mansion was sold in 1928, to the North Metropolitan Electricity Supply Company. The mansion was subsequently enlarged. It is now a desirable residential care home called Southgate Beaumont. 
Until the 1930s, the area was largely rural. In 1932, Arnos Grove Underground station was opened, on the Piccadilly Line. This major step paved the way for suburbanisation, and by 1939, the area to the north of Arnos Grove was built up as the classy Minchenden estate. More recently, privately built flats have been added in the area. Today, Arnos Grove is a pleasant suburb, with plenty of open green space, and a good range of affordable homes.

Connected Living London are proposing to transform the land adjacent to Arnos Grove Underground station. This is the most recognisable and cherished of Charles Holden's station designs. In 2011, the station was granted Grade II* status. Connected Living London propose to preserve and enhance the station setting, while also providing 162 homes, including 40% affordable housing. This will be suitable for key workers living or working in Enfield.
The development will encourage active travel by enhancing the stations' surroundings, including a public square, for the local community to enjoy. This will make it easier and safer for people to walk and cycle in the area. New flexible commercial space will open out onto the newly created public space.
Connected Living London believe that a sustainable development means more than the environment. For example, the local economy will flourish, and quality of life will be improved. One example of the environment's improvement will be the transformation of car parks, to reduce congestion and improve air quality. 
The homes are designed to reduce energy, water and waste consumption. For greening and landscaping, existing trees will be protected, and the policy will be to replace any being removed. High home quality will indicate good standards, for running costs, health and wellbeing.
