Leasehold

Major Refurbishment Works

The council is planning a new programme of major refurbishment works to the flat blocks (not22 tenants have become leaseholders by buying their flats under the Right to Buy scheme. including the high-rise tower blocks) which is expected to begin in 2018. The type of work will vary from block-to-block based on survey outcomes.

We sent all residents in the blocks an information leaflet about the programme in early 2017. This is in-line with legislation that requires us to consult with you before we carry out the work. This process is known as the ‘Section 20’ consultation.

To find out more, please visit our leasehold page on the website at www.stevenage.gov.uk. This will explain in much greater detail the ‘Section 20’ process and answer questions you may have.

We listened
We continue to consider leaseholders’ views and suggestions concerning the future of the caretaking service. We hosted a detailed planning session at our Leasehold Residents Meeting, where leaseholders were able to share ideas about suggested improvements to the service they receive.
