Following the Scottish Government’s announcement last week, we can confirm that day-to-day repairs and planned maintenance works, including bathroom installations, electric heating upgrades and energy efficiency works are continuing across our housing stock with measures in place to reduce risks to tenants and contractors.
If you are on one of our Planned Maintenance Contracts and work is due on your home, you should have received a copy of our Tenant Health and Safety Guidance – COVID-19 Planned Maintenance Contract Agreement which sets out what is expected of our tenants and contractors when work is being carried out in their homes.
As we have done during the lockdown period since 23 March 2020, and as restrictions have been eased, we will continue to carry out annual servicing of gas heating systems as we are required to do by law.
You can find advice on the NHS Inform Coronavirus (COVID-19) website – the main symptoms of the coronavirus include;
o A new, continuous, dry cough
o A high temperature
o Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
We appreciate your co-operation at this time and hope you find this information useful, but if you have any queries about this post, please email us at HousingTechnical@angus.gov.uk
