Events and meetings

Earlier this year, our teams were out and about in your area to make sure everything is as it should be.

We'll be holding more Estate Walkabouts in your area soon. We will aim to identify health & safety issues through estate inspections, and scheme visits by our officers, but welcome you to contact us and report anything you see too.

Customer satisfaction

From July - September 2023, customers* living in Hurdsfield told us they were 70% satisfied with the overall service from us.

  • 89% of customers who had a repair in the last 12 months told us they were satisfied with the service.

  • However only 33% of customers were satisfied that the Trust listens and acts upon views. That is why we will be providing regular updates on lessons we have learnt from complaints to show how we are listening and improving our services for customers. You can also view what impact you can make on our services here.

In the area we also have:

  • 41 inside shared spaces. 

    Did you know we’ll install smoke and/or heat detectors to current fire safety regulations in all shared spaces and service these in line with the British Standard?

We make sure our homes are well maintained and safe

We plan to invest £9,888,343 over the next 1 - 5 years in this area. 

  • Every year, we service 1254 gas appliances in the area.  

  • All gas heating systems including gas boilers, gas fires and other gas appliances that have been provided by us will be serviced annually. 

  • We’ll install and maintain carbon monoxide monitors in all homes with an open flue, solid fuel or where the boiler is in a bedroom/living area. 

  • All domestic and communal electrical wiring will be tested every 5 years.

  • We will carry out surveys and maintain an asbestos register which will record the presence of any asbestos in internal and communal areas. We will repeat this survey according to best practice guidelines. These guidelines differ depending upon the type, location and condition of any asbestos found.
  • See also: Safety at home 

Windows in all homes will be double glazed, and loft insulation will be improved as much as possible to help reduce your energy bills. Where appropriate we will also install alternative technology such as air source heat pumps or solar panels. 

We’ll respond to all requests for adaptations from occupational therapists and install level access showers as a replacement to baths in all older person accommodation.

External painting and internal communal areas will be repainted every 7 years.

(Unless lease agreements specify earlier, or the condition of individual schemes requires a different timescale.)

The approach to replacing all major building components (such as windows, doors, kitchens and boilers) will depend on their current condition and whether they form part of our improvements programme of work. 

Stock condition surveys and individual inspections will take place to determine whether replacement is required. This will identify where a component needs to be replaced earlier than scheduled, or where replacement works can be rescheduled due to the component not needing to be replaced.

Local support and partners

What is happening in your area...

We believe everyone has the right to enjoy their home and live peacefully alongside their neighbours. To make sure this is possible each person must play their part.

During July - September 2023, 88% of customers living in your area who responded to our survey said they were satisfied with our approach to ASB. 

In the last 12 months, we have dealt with and resolved 23 anti-social behaviour and hate crime cases in the area. Here is a summary.

  • 4 neighbour disputes 

  • 9 noise-related

  • 1 vandalism

  • 3 threatening behaviour

  • verbal abuse

  • 1 harassment

  • 1 substance abuse

  • 3 Domestic Abuse cases

The Trust takes a multi-agency approach to dealing with ASB, there are a number of early interventions we can take such as referring cases for mediation, referring cases into complex case forums, using warnings and acceptable behaviour contracts and where necessary taking legal action such as a Civil Injunction or Possession Proceedings. We work closely with the Police and when required support them when they apply for a Closure Order against a property managed by the Trust. In most cases early interventions are successful and the Trust is able to resolve issues at the earliest opportunity.

Find out more about what we mean by 'anti-social behaviour' and how you can report it.
