Fire risk assessments
We regularly carry out checks and improvements in all of our homes and blocks of flats to ensure they comply with legislation and modern safety standards. We have instructed a third-party contractor, Frankhams, to carry out fire risk assessments up until March 2022. Frankhams will need access to a few homes to carry out a full assessment. They will be contacting customers directly to arrange access, and we would greatly appreciate your cooperation with this.
To find out when they will be carrying out checks in your area please click the button below.
We are currently only attending fence repairs if they are a health and safety hazard, or are on a public highway.
Our phone lines are emergency-only from 10am to 11am on Thursdays
Our customer hub team has essential training from 10am to 11am on Thursdays. During this hour, please only call us on 01344 382 800 if you need urgent support. Our phone lines will reopen for general enquiries and requests at 11am. Thank you for your understanding.
