Did you know we carry out estate inspections around all of our properties? These take place throughout the year and we'll be in your area at least:
- every two months, April - September
- every three months, October – March
They are a chance for us to look out for issues like:
- damage to garages
- damage to public spaces
- fly tipping
- clutter and litter in communal areas
- overgrown garden and hedges
We may not always spot everything when we’re out and about - we’re only human after all. If you want to bring anything to our attention, get in touch with us, and we’ll make sure we check it out when we’re in your area.
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.
For more information about projects planned for your area, email us at [email protected]
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 [email protected]
