Improvement Projects

We have been very busy recently with improvement projects across our properties to improve and update facilities for our customers.


One of our bigger projects was at the Belmont Estate in Stockport. The properties on this Estate are rented properties and were in need of modernisation, we have begun replacing inefficient electric storage heaters and hot water systems with modern equipment in 78 homes. This work will continue until August.

We have also installed new lifts at schemes in Manchester and Stockport, replacing obsolete and worn out equipment.

Three of our sheltered schemes in Manchester and Sheffield have also benefitted from upgrades to heating and hot water distribution systems and central boiler plant replacements. This will mean customers will have heat meters for each flat, enabling them to be billed individually for the heat they use.

Our Gas Servicing Programme has been completed for 2016/17 with 100% of installations serviced on time, approximately 2200 services in all.

Following on from raised concerns from customers over security and a level of dissatisfaction in regards to appearance, all main entrance doors have been renewed incorporating a secure door entry system at Pine Court in Didsbury.
