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.
Are you a tenant or an owner who lives in in a block of flats where ACHA have properties?
If so you will have noticed that we have erected Notice Boards in these closes. This is a useful way to keep you updated with important information.
From July our contractors, Argyll Homes for All (AHFA) have been leaving a card in the Notice Board each time they complete a repair in the common close area to ensure you are kept up to date. The card will provide details of the repair that they carried out, and the date and time it was fixed.
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 common landscaping. Any items requiring attention or repair are instructed. If you see us out and about please come up and speak to us as we welcome any input from our residents. We are starting to carry out Estate Walkabouts from September this year. See below for further details regarding this. You can also complete your own Estate Inspections by clicking here.
Each area team prepares an Estate Action plan which describes how the team will deliver the Estate Management Service in your area.
The Estate Action plan includes:
- approved improvement projects planned for the year ahead
- advise how often we will visit each of our estates
- what we will do when we're there & how we'll address any issues that we find
- details of our ground maintenance contract
You can contribute to this plan by emailing, phoning or calling in to your nearest Area office with your ideas. All proposals have to be approved by the Area Committee before they can be implemented.
To view when the first phase of estate walkabouts will be taking place in your area please click the relevant link below. It would be great to meet with you and hear your views and ideas for improvements on the estates that you live in. Helensburgh & Lomond dates will become available soon.
