Managing our Neighbourhoods and the Environment
We want to ensure that the neighbourhood is attractive, well-maintained and a safe place to live. In order to make this happen we have to effectively manage the environment around our properties and any common areas. Check out our Guide to Managing your Neighbourhood here.
The Estate Management Policy covers many different areas, some of which are not provided by us but the external agencies, such as Argyll & Bute Council & many owners have responsibilities from their title deeds.
Managing our Neighbourhoods and Estates
Improve your neighbourhood by getting involved in estate inspections. Any minor issues that are spotted will be noted and addressed by the Housing & Neighbourhood Services staff. These might include:
- Untidy Gardens
- Abandoned Vehicles
- Dog Fouling
- Fly Tipping
The Association carries out regular inspections of its estates to ensure they are maintained in a good condition. During the inspection our staff will record any areas of disrepair, untidiness and the condition of any landscaping. Any items requiring attention or repair are instructed. We welcome any tenant's participation in the quarterly joint inspections with our staff, enabling them to express any concerns they may have. The date of these can be found on the estate performance form or in the newsletter for your area. Please contact your area office for further details if you want to take part. If you can't join the team on the day, you can still take part by completing your own inspection by clicking here.
