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.

During July - September 2023, 91% 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 14 anti-social behaviour and hate crime cases in the area. Here is a summary.
1 threatening behaviour
1 verbal abuse
3 domestic abuse cases
1 hate crime
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.
