We expect high winds in excess of 50mph in the Angus area to continue until late afternoon on Friday 17 February.
This is likely to result in an increase in repair calls today and over the weekend. As always, safety is paramount and all our contractors and staff have to take safety into consideration when attending all repairs, particularly those that are a result of bad weather. As has been the case previously, when we are experiencing bad weather, our contractors will only be able to carry out work and repairs if it is safe to do so.
This may include not being able to work on any damaged roofs and, if it is deemed unsafe to work on the roof, they will do their best to either board up from the inside or lay protection or buckets inside to catch any water leaks, making them as wind and water-tight as they can. They will follow up and complete the repair as soon as it is safe to do so.
The problem we had with weekly direct debits has now been fixed – all direct debits due on Friday should now have been taken from bank accounts. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Unfortunately a system issue has caused any weekly direct debits for rent which were due to come out of tenants’ bank accounts today (Friday) to be late. We are working to get this resolved, but please be assured the direct debit will still come out of bank accounts some time next week. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.
We can confirm the Angus Homefinder site is now working again.
Our teams would also like to extend our thanks for your patience during this time.
We are aware of a fault this morning with the Angus Homefinder bidding site. Our service provider is working to fix this as soon as they can. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please be patient, we hope to have it resolved as soon as possible.
The Scottish Government requires every Local Authority to have a Local Housing Strategy (LHS). The LHS must be reviewed and updated every five years.
Our LHS for 2023 to 2028 will:
- set out how we and our partners plan to address the challenges and opportunities in housing and related services
- determine what homes and communities should feel like over the next five years
- list the outcomes we want to achieve for local people
We believe that good, quality housing can:
- help our communities grow
- regenerate the places we live
- reduce inequalities
- ensure everyone has a home which meets their needs
To help prepare we have produced topic papers.
These set the scene and highlight the main housing issues in Angus.
But we need our LHS to truly reflect the housing issues faced by local people and communities.
We want to hear the views of the local community and stakeholders. This will help us identify the most important issues and priorities.
With your help, we can get it right.

The survey closes Wednesday 22nd April
