Many tenants are receiving new kitchens and bathrooms. Other improvements include new central heating systems, reroofing, garden paths, fences and external wall insulation where required.
Work carried out over the past year includes:
A £163m funding programme (to be invested up until 2020) was approved by the council’s Executive Board in 2016.
A record £52m was invested between April 2016 and April 2017, including a £7.5m major repairs grant from Welsh Government.
The local economy has also benefited, with over 60 apprentices – including a number studying at Coleg Cambria – being taken on by council contractors.
You can learn more about the Welsh Housing Quality Standard on our main website, including a timetable to see when work is due to be carried out in your area.
