Management Committee Role:

Member of Estates & Amenities Sub Committee
Hello, I’m Tom Butler. I’m married to Amelia, and we have a one-year-old daughter, Layla. I own and run a smarthome and audiovisual systems installation business, with offices in Essex, Kent and Surrey. Amelia is a Client Account Manager at JP Morgan Asset Management in London.
Amelia and I moved to the Aqua Verde side of Channels in November 2016, just six weeks after getting married. Having spent (what we felt was) a significant amount of money on our property (and its optional extras!) we were thoroughly disappointed with the standard of finish, and incredibly angry with Bellway’s lack of effort to fix the snags. It took them nearly two years to finish our list, and they just didn’t care!
I then became frustrated with the standard of the landscaping and its maintenance, and began focusing my efforts on the incumbent managing agent. Not to mention the thoroughly disappointing bus service, which I’ve also fought hard to improve.
Having discovered that a group of like-minded volunteers were convening on Facebook, I decided to join forces with them to aid in getting Bellway to deliver on their promises, and to appropriately deal with the managing agent. Together I’m pleased to say that we have made significant progress and I hope to yield further results in the months and years to come.
