We spend in the region of £7 million pounds per annum maintaining and improving homes for our tenants.

As well as the minor and routine maintenance programmes in place to cover unexpected minor repairs such as taps, electrical faults, and small areas of plastering, there is also a large capital improvement programme in place for tenants.

The council's expenditure falls into two areas: a revenue element to maintain existing items, servicing and repairs to void properties and a capital element that allows for improvements to be undertaken.

Current improvement programmes include:

  • rewiring
  • replacement kitchens and bathrooms
  • re-roofing
  • heating and energy improvements
