Grassland and woodland fires

With the recent hot weather and lack of rain, much of the grass and woodland in the UK is currently dry and more susceptible to fire.

As a result, it is essential we all take the following steps to reduce the chances of a fire:

  • We do not permit BBQs or open fires in our communal spaces, so please refrain from doing so.
  • Ensure cigarettes and any naked flames are fully extinguished and disposed of properly. Don’t throw them on the ground or from car windows.
  • Dispose of litter correctly. Items such as glass bottles can magnify the sun and start fires.

If you see a fire in the open, no matter how small, get yourself to safety and call 999.

 

Planned kitchen and bathroom upgrades

From July 2022, we will work with CLC Contractors to begin a three-year programme of planned kitchen and bathroom upgrades in some of our homes.

These upgrades will mostly be carried out on kitchens and bathrooms over twenty years old.

If you wish to have your home surveyed, please contact us by calling us on 01344 382 800, or by clicking the button below to send us an email.

Digital gas service certificates

We will no longer leave Landlord Gas Safety Register certificates in your home after gas safety inspections. These will instead be emailed or posted to you if we do not have your email address.
