Hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion’s £2.3 mil­lion up­grade spend­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

A HOUS­ING as­so­ci­a­tion in Peter­bor­ough has said hun­dreds of res­i­dents have ben­e­fited from an rein­vest­ment pro­gramme worth more than £2 mil­lion in the last year.

Ac­cent Nene said it has spent more than £2.3 mil­lion on im­prove­ments to its res­i­dents’ homes in the last 12 months.

Dur­ing this time, hun­dreds have re­ceived brand new fit­ted kitchens, bath­rooms, win­dows and heat­ing sys­tems, as well as car­ry­ing out “nu­mer­ous” es­tate im­prove­ments in­clud­ing re­newed fenc­ing and communal kitchens, and the in­stal­la­tion of au­to­mated doors, bike racks and gat­ing.

Neil Cox, tech­ni­cal ser­vices man­ager at Ac­cent Nene, said: “This is all part of our on­go­ing com­mit­ment to our res­i­dents.

“We con­tinue to rein­vest in their homes to en­sure we main­tain them to a high stan­dard and pro­vide a com­fort­able liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“We fol­low up our im­prove­ments with cus­tomer sur­veys which help to shape and mould our ser­vices to meet our res­i­dents’ spe­cific re­quire- ments - and we also en­cour­age them to be­come fur­ther in­volved via our Res­i­dents’ Hous­ing In­vest­ment Panel.”

Ac­cent Nene said that 700 im­prove­ments have been made to its homes in Peter­bor­ough dur­ing the last year, with many more ear­marked for up­grades in the fu­ture as part of con­tin­ued rein­vest­ment.
