Each year we invest money in refurbishment works across our homes. From April 2023 to March 2024 we have planned the following works:
- £375,575 replacement fire alarms
- £99,290 insulation works (dependant on a funding bid)
- £22,091 replacement kitchens
- £16,805 replacement bathrooms
- £46,068 replacement boilers
We have already completed phase 1 of our fire alarm replacements. This year we will replace all remaining fire alarms, bringing them up to the highest standard. All fire alarms systems are serviced every 6 months.
We will replace three kitchens and bathrooms this year. We will resume a larger programme of kitchen replacements in 2024/25.
All new boilers have the maximum rating for energy efficiency, helping reduce gas consumption and the cost of use.
We hope to begin a programme of insulation works across our homes with an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of D or below. This will make our homes warmer and cheaper to heat. This is dependant on a funding bid. If successful, we will begin with our homes at Clissold Road.
