Repairs to council properties

Follow the links below for information on who to contact for repairs to a council owned property, what you can expect from the council and which parts of your home you are responsible for. 


Updates on our service due to Coronavirus

We will only be carrying out urgent or emergency council housing repairs until further notice. These include:

•  Heating and hot water
•  Water leaks
•  Electrical issues
•  Health and safety works
•  Sanitary plumbing
•  Home security issues

Non-essential repairs such as decorating, plastering, adjusting doors or non-emergency surveys will temporarily be put on hold. We are unfortunately not able to accept any new non-essential repair requests at this time.

For tenants requesting an urgent repair, please be advised that our repair customer service staff will ask if anyone in your household is self-isolating. This is to ensure we have adequate measures in place to avoid the spread of the virus and to protect our tenants, staff and contractors.

Don't forget ... ALWAYS ask for identification before you let someone into your home. All Council employees and contractors carry ID and will not mind if you ask to see it. If you are still suspicious call the Council on 01799 510510.

If they cannot supply ID, DO NOT let them into your house.
