Housing association’s £2.3 million upgrade spending
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.
