The work has been carried out at Victoria Close, Irwell Close, and Irwell House in Sefton Park, to ensure all residents felt safe, and happy in a home that they could feel proud of.
Working with contractor Novus Property Solutions, Your Housing Group worked hard to make changes in line with both what was needed, and what the residents wanted to see. The work included:
- New lighting, inside and out
- Interior decoration
- Flooring repairs
- Deep clean of all corridors
- New flooring in all stairwells
- New fob access system and new handsets for all flats
- New external doors
- New locks on bin stores
- New communal fire doors to top floors
- Structural repairs on the internal stairwells
- New louvred windows
The three blocks are situated in one of Your Housing Group’s priority neighbourhoods, which they have recognised as being in need of some extra support, work, or services to support residents and the wider community.
Your Housing Group have carried out evening walks with colleagues and residents, added new signage to all blocks, improved lighting outside communal doors and bin areas, and installed bike racks. They have also taken measures to deal with fly tipping and moved planters to prevent dog fouling.
Conan McKinley, Director of Asset Management for Your Housing Group said, “A huge thank you to everyone involved in this work. At Your Housing Group we want to ensure that our residents feel happy and safe in their homes, and live within a community where they can thrive. The residents are all thrilled with the investment in the communal spaces, and the measures implemented as part of our priority neighbourhood focus will benefit the wider community too.”
