Kilburn Square Housing Co-op is a limited company registered with the Financial Services Authority as an Industrial and Provident Society (Registration number IP27573R). It was set up in 1994 as a Tenant Management Organisation governed in line with the Right to Manage Legislation. We have a legally binding contract with Brent Council: a Modular Management Agreement which sets out our role and responsibilities as well as the Council’s role and responsibilities.
The TMO manages 246 properties of which approximately 30% are leaseholder properties. KSHC is an open and democratically run organisation, governed by a Management Board made up of residents who sit as volunteer Directors that are responsible for the strategic delivery of all undertakings. All residents with a legal entitlement to live on the estate are entitled to become Members and to participate in the decision-making processes of the TMO.
The Board is supported by a dedicated staff team based in Kilburn Square, London, NW6 6PT, who are employed to deliver the day to day work and services for the estate. The Estate Manager reports monthly to the Board and is in charge of a team comprising a Housing Officer, a Finance Officer, a Maintenance Officer, a Security and Front Desk Coordinator, plus three caretakers.
KSHC is located in the London Borough of Brent. The TMO is in the heart of Kilburn, a stone’s throw off the high street. The estate is made up of a 17-storey tower block built in the late 1960s and four low-rise buildings of 6 or 7 floors. There is a large playground area and a number of gardens. Our community is very ethnically diverse and there is a mixture of families, all generations and people from different cultural backgrounds.
