Investment Programmes

This year we will be spending £10.9 million between April 2018 and March 2019 on improving homes and neighbourhoods and are planning on spending a further £34.4 million between April 2019 and March 2023.

The improvement works planned to be carried out over the next five years will be completed in a priority order. An outline of the planned programmes will be published in this section for 2018/19. Further information will be published as the programme of work is scheduled.

This investment includes:

  • Works to neighbourhood estates and the environment – open spaces, roads, car parks and drains
  • Works to gardens and boundaries – garden paths, walls, fences and gates
  • External works to homes – new windows, doors, render and roofing
  • Internal works to homes – boilers, wirings, kitchens and bathrooms

The improvement works planned to be carried out over the next 5 years will be completed in a priority order.

The order is based on the following:

  1. Health, safety and legal compliance
  2. Building components coming to the end of their life
  3. Borderline WHQS passes that would benefit from further improvement
  4. Reducing the demand for responsive repairs
  5. Improvements in thermal comfort (highest weather exposure first)
  6. Improvements in energy efficiency and reduction in utility costs for tenants to reduce fuel poverty.

The order is also influenced by:

  • Tenant satisfaction with the neighbourhood
  • Stock turnover and number of empty homes
  • Demand for homes
  • Indices of multiple deprivation indicators
  • Poor energy efficiency of homes

An outline of the planned programmes for 2017/18 is published below. Further information will be published as the programme of work is scheduled.
