Information for Tenants and Leaseholders
Six brand new council homes have been completed at Townhill Park, ready to let this month. An additional 50 flats will be available from April. Check out our next issue for more details.
As well as building new homes, we’re committed to ensuring our current properties are safe and well maintained. We were recently recognised by the National Housing Maintenance Forum for our work to enhance fire safety in our tower blocks. We’re investing £25 million on a range of works including installing over 2,000 new fire doors and sprinkler systems within each flat.
Finally, if you’re already wavering on your new year resolution to cut back on sweets and chocolate, download the
sugar swap app for healthy snack ideas the whole family can follow. Experts say children in England are eating an extra 2,800 sugar cubes a year, more than double the recommended guidelines. That's equivalent to 312 cans of sugary cola each year or 562 chocolate bars! And all that sugar can lead to obesity, tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. With just one or two simple ‘sugar swaps’ you can really make a difference to your family’s health.
