- Scheme improvements will be taking place in 2018 to include redecorating and modernising communal areas and facilities.
- This scheme is also due for a communal boiler placement and new radiators in each property in 2018, so residents won’t have the worry of arranging their own gas provider. Instead there will be a weekly charge for heating and hot water (at an additional charge to the rent). All communal areas will be redecorated.
