Current Major Works

Major Refurbishment Contract

We are undertaking a programme of major refurbishment work to blocks of flats (not including the tower blocks). Work will vary from block to block and will be dependent on a detailed survey of each block.

This work will not include maintenance and repair of your own (‘demised’) premises, which will normally be the interior parts of your flat. Your lease should have a definition of what is included within your demised premises and what, therefore, is your responsibility.

We expect it to take around a year from now for us to procure building contractors and carry out the necessary planning, with works starting in 2018. We believe the whole town-wide programme of work will be carried out over five years. We will let you have a programme showing which year each block will have work done, once all the work is planned.

As a leaseholder, you will be aware that under the terms of your lease you are required to contribute towards the costs of this work. Details of the consultation process are on the main Major Works page and you will find a link to our Payment Options Policy below.
