We’re committed to making Derby’s estates places where people are proud and happy to live.
To improve our estates we:
- carry out regular estate inspections
- keep communal areas clean, well lit and well maintained
- maintain communal grassed areas to an agreed standard
- liaise with residents about environmental improvements
- deliver environmental improvements using a range of funding
- work with you on local regeneration projects
- work with other organisations to help make your community safer
- arrange for abandoned vehicles to be removed within 7 days
- remove hate graffiti within 24 hours of being notified, and all other graffiti within 10 working days.
Estates Pride is a programme of improvement and landscaping works where we aim to give our residents pride in the areas they live. The money we spend is given to us by Derby City Council from the Housing Revenue Account.
We consult with our customers and partners, at stakeholder events and other meeting to discuss where the funding should be spent. A number of projects have already been developed, including neighbourhood working and a youth inclusion project.

Improving your estates
The majority of ideas for the Estates Pride projects come from our tenants.
The sort of suggestions we get for work include:
- metal fencing
- recycled fencing
- drying areas
- block paving
The aim of any work is to improve the area and reduce anti social behaviour, making it a safer, cleaner and greener area.
We visit areas to look at how improvements can be made and consult with residents, giving details of the proposals. Our consultation process involves writing to residents, knocking on doors (where possible), holding meetings, and putting information on our website. We also work with other agencies to secure external funding for projects.
Your views are very important to us, so please keep the ideas coming in by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
