Housing repairs and improvements

Fence repairs

We are currently working on a high number of requests for repairs to fences at council housing. This means it's taking longer than usual to complete some repairs. We apologise for any inconvenience and expect to complete all overdue repairs by mid-September 2022.

If you don't like your council repairs or you are in any way unhappy with the service you have received, call our repairs section. They will take details from you and try and solve your problem.
