Housing Planned Maintenance – COVID-19 Update April 2021

In line with the Scottish Government’s guidance on easing of lockdown restrictions, we have been working closely with contractors to make sure a measured approach has been taken to restarting planned maintenance work for tenants in our properties.

The following planned maintenance contracts will restart in the weeks following 26 April 2021;

•    Bathroom Replacements

•    Kitchen Replacements

•    Energy Efficiency Works

•    Window Replacements

•    Electrical Testing

•    Electric Heating Upgrades

•    Smoke Alarm and Heat Detection Upgrades

Where tenants had already been notified of planned works pre-lockdown the relevant contractor will be in touch to arrange installation or survey visits whilst also advising of new processes which have been put in place for everyone’s safety.

If your home is included in a new contract you will receive a letter from us as well as the appointed contractor to advise of works planned and the processes related to that contract.

Please be aware that some contractors are starting to get in touch with our tenants now to confirm start dates for works, design visits, safety checks to enable external works to start etc. If you unsure about any of this please get in touch with the Housing Technical team.

As we have done throughout the lockdown period, we will continue to carry out annual servicing of gas heating systems as we are required to do by law.

We will keep our approach under regular review and provide updates as the guidance from the Scottish Government develops. Please keep an eye on the Housing Blog and our website for further updates.

You can find NHS advice on the NHS Coronavirus COVID 19 website –– the main symptoms of the coronavirus include;

•    A new, continuous, dry cough

•    A high temperature

•    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 contact us by emailing HousingTechnical@angus.gov.uk
