In 1992 residents of Clapton Park came together and campaigned for Clapton Park, Nye Bevan and Millfields estates to be run independently by the residents. After several years of campaigning Clapton Park Management Organisation was officially formed in 1994 as a Tenant Management Organisation (TMO).
This means that we are governed and managed by a Board which is led by local people. The Board work with tenants, leaseholders, TMO staff and Hackney Council to achieve the common goal of making sure that Clapton Park is a safe, enjoyable and well maintained area to live.
Our Mission Statement and Values
“Our mission is to create and sustain a clean and beautiful estate where residents look forward to coming home”
We have 7 core values which emphasis what we aim to achieve:
“We will always put residents first” (Resident first ethos)
“We will walk the walk….” (We will take responsibility)
“We are home, we are family….” (We will work as one big team/community)
“We are straight talking” (We will be open, honest & transparent)
“We take pride in being sustainable and environmentally aware”
“We will make every penny count…” (We will achieve good value for money)
“We celebrate diversity” (We will encourage equality & diversity)
