We are very proud to have completed our highly successful Decent Homes programme which has seen £63m invested in your homes.
We delivered the ambitious investment programme to more than 8,000 properties which has improved the quality of life for thousands
How it helped
The Decent Homes programme has led to benefits for customers such as:
- Lower fuel bills
- Improved thermal comfort
- Reduction in CO2 emissions
New Kitchens and Bathrooms
Although our main Decent Homes programme has now been completed, we are still carrying out improvement works to homes as part of our on-going capital works programme.
Where we have identified that a replacement kitchen or bathroom is required or if you believe that your existing facilities could require upgrading we will review the information we hold about your home and arrange a survey if necessary.
If a replacement is required, this will be arranged with you. Please note that we are only carrying out replacements during the summer of each year - unless it is assessed as an emergency.
Here are some of the lovely comments we received from satisfied customers about the Decent Homes programme.
"The teamwork was exceptional. The quality of work was excellent. I was kept well informed of the progress and could not fault from survey to completion."
"The guys who fitted our new central heating were brilliant, friendly, and helpful. They did a fantastic job, got on with it and left no mess. Really happy with the work done."
"Some of the best tradesmen ever to visit my home. Very very good."
Following the successful completion of the Decent Homes programme we will continue to build, repair and renew our homes and address those issues not covered by the Decent Homes funding, such as major structural repairs.
In 2015/16 we invested £12.5m on improvement works and will invest a total of £30m by 2018. The works will include fitting new kitchens, roofs, windows, heating systems, and bathrooms following on from the Decent Homes project works.
We want our properties to be perfect for when a tenant moves into them, to make that happen we invested £5m in 2015/16 to undertake major works to homes that become void.
Funding will go towards resolving damp and structural issues as well as improving the heating, bathrooms, kitchens and decoration of the homes.
