To ensure that estates are kept clean and in a good condition, inspections are carried out on a regular basis. Between the months of May and September 10 Rate your Estate inspections have taken place, with an additional inspection of the Lakeside towers (at the request of the residents).

Eight volunteers carried out the inspections with the average volunteer completing three inspections.

Issues that were identified on the inspections included:

  • Poor railings/walls/fences
  • Untidy gardens
  • Private properties not being maintained
  • Dead trees/weeds
  • Litter/fly tipping
  • Blocked drains
  • Dog fouling
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Pot holes and loose paving

Following the inspections, feedback was sent to the inspectors to notify them about the actions that had been taken following the walkabouts. The feedback helped to ensure the Neighbourhood Coordinators were responding to the issues raised. This has worked really well and has been well received by the customers involved.
