We are continuing our successful investment programme to improve homes across the district. Our projects this year include fitting new roofs and windows to homes across the district.
We were delighted that our energy efficiency work earned us the award of Regional Landlord of the Year at the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Energy Efficiency Awards. The award celebrated our excellent work to tackle fuel poverty, reduce carbon emissions and help residents reduce their energy bills.
In addition to our energy efficiency work we are also upgrading communal and balcony areas in flats to improve security and make them more attractive.
Energy efficiency in Grassmoor
Improvement works to 175 homes in Grassmoor are continuing. The programme is part of our long-term commitment to improve the thermal efficiency of our non-traditionally built properties to make them easier to heat and keep warm. We are now fitting External Wall Insulation to the homes. Earlier this year we completed work to fit new roofs where needed and new windows.
We are carrying out a repair programme to balconies on flats in Danesmoor, Dronfield and Holmesfield.
We are currently replacing 74 roofs on the Castle Hill Estate in Eckington.
As part of our on-going programme to replace older windows we are fitting new ones on 105 homes in Tupton and 72 in Unstone.
Communal entrance flats
As part of our improvement programme we have completed new communal entrance doors to blocks of flats in Killamarsh and Grassmoor. This includes the introduction of card entry systems and customer entry systems.
