The plans have been published as part of the council’s annual review of the Housing Revenue Account business plan, working closely with tenants and residents.Government Opportunities (GO)

As well as the rent reductions, the proposals outline how the council will deliver on its key priorities and invest in tenants homes to ensure that they are well maintained over the next 5 years.

If approved at Cabinet on 16th January, the council will continue to adopt a proactive approach to managing the city’s neighbourhoods, supporting tenants affected by welfare reform changes and re-shaping the repairs service.

Tenants will also see around £400 million of investment over the next five years to make sure homes and estates are well maintained.

The investment programme will continue to prioritise and deliver improvements to kitchens, bathrooms, windows, doors, roofs and communal areas. Investment in additional fire safety works will include sprinklers, fire stopping works as well as a start on environmental works to improve our estates. Improved recycling facilities will also be introduced.

This level of investment will also provide the opportunity over the next 5 years to create many apprenticeships and local employment opportunities.
