Planned works

These are specialist works such as guttering, building work, roofing and footpaths, where they do not pose a risk to health, safety or security of the occupants or third party or where and/or specialist materials may be required. e.g. doors, windows or works that require multiple trades.

Work will be prioritised and we will aim to complete the work within six months. This can be dependent on materials availability, contractor’s availability and the weather. If we are unable to carry the repair within six months, we will contact you in advance and agree another deadline.
