Improving your homes and neighbourhoods

This page provides information about how we plan investment to your homes and neighbourhoods, and the work that we have planned for the future.

Please note that work will only be carried out to properties that have been identified as needing it. Details in our proposed plans may be subject to change due to changes in funding.

​​

Housing Leeds has a budget of £82 million to spend on improvements between April 2016 and March 2017.

​​Major repair and replacement works are planned by looking at information from past surveys and about what work has already been carried out. This helps us identify where future works are most needed.

​​As we manage over 56,000 council houses, bungalows, flats and blocks this is a long process, so we split the properties into smaller geographical areas so that we have a better understanding of where work is most needed.

We use computerised systems to hold and sort the information, checked by our staff to make sure that it is accurate. This ensures that investment goes where it is most needed, that we get value for money and, most importantly, that the process is fair for tenants.

​​Once we have prioritised the work by areas, our stock condition team carry out surveys of properties in those areas to identify the properties that need work. This can be done quickly and without much disruption for work such as roofs, windows or doors. However, for works such as kitchens or bathrooms, internal access to the property is required.

If we require internal access to your property, we will contact you to arrange for a surveyor to visit. As far as possible, appointments are made at a time that is convenient to you. It is very important to allow the surveyor into your home to make an assessment, as failure to do so, could result in your home not being included in a scheme of work.

After the property surveys have been completed, the information is used to create lists of properties that need work.

Our Planned Work team use the lists to arrange for the work to be carried out by our contractors. They contact tenants to let them know what work will be done at their property and when.
