Transforming homes

What we will be doing

Before the works start you will get a letter, which will give an overview of the Transforming Homes programme.

Closer to the works starting, we will hold drop-in sessions for residents. The drop-in sessions will be advertised around your estate. Pop along to find out what will be happening when and to ask questions. You will also be able to see samples of tiles, flooring, kitchen units, worktops, cupboard handles and paint colours.

A resident liaison officer will visit you to talk about the works and the choices you can make. Some or all of the following work may be done on your home. A survey will be carried out to decide the exact work that will be undertaken. We have already set the standard that your home should meet.

Your home may need work to be carried out that is different to a neighbour's home. If items in your home already meet the standard then these will not be replaced.
