Upgrading our homes

Our capital projects team manage improvements to our housing stock as part of our major investment programme.

We aim to provide you with accurate and up to date information about our investment plans and the improvements you can expect to see across our neighbourhoods in the coming year.

Our capital investment works have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic over the past year and some projects had to be put on hold. During this year, we have programmed a significant investment plan in our existing homes and will be undertaking the following works:

Flat entrance doors 88
Replacement kitchens 100
Replacement bathrooms 15
Boiler replacements 275
Electrical rewiring 50
Alterations to common heating 14

We will also be undertaking a programme of surveys and repairs to stonework in our pre—1919 tenement stock and developing proposals for energy improvements in our older properties.

We will be in touch directly with tenants who are included in the investment plan for this year.
