Planned Maintenance Update
The Planned Maintenance Programme for 2023/24 is moving along nicely. The kitchen replacements in Gifford and the bathroom replacements at Plough Lane, Tranent, where we have been able to get access, are complete, and a number of the kitchens from earlier projects where we were unable to get access initially, have also been completed.
The kitchen replacement project in Goose Green Court, Musselburgh is now on site with completion expected by late September. The next kitchen replacement project will be in North High Street, Musselburgh, and letters to tenants advising of forthcoming visits to measure up for their new kitchens should be with them soon.
The bathroom replacement in Tyne Park, Pencaitland started on site in late July and is expected to finish in mid-September. This project has been delayed by the large number of “one off” replacements and over bath showers which we have been fitting. It may come as a surprise to many that we still have some homes without access to a shower. Whenever we come across this situation in an empty property, we will fit an over bath shower and we are committed to providing showers in all of our properties. If you don’t have a shower in your home and you would like one, please contact us and we will have a Property Officer come out to visit you to see what we can do to help. Following on from Tyne Park will be the replacement of the bathrooms at the older properties in The Glebe, East Saltoun.
The project to rebuild a boundary wall in Stenton is now on site and it is hoped to have this complete by mid-September.
