Richmondshire District Council

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

If improvement works are planned for your home, these will still be carried out. Some may be delayed and rearranged for a slightly later date due to the pandemic.

If your home is included in our 2021-22 programme, we will contact you directly. Improvements will only be made to properties where tenants want the work completed. If you do not want the works to go ahead, these can be postponed until a later date.

Our contractors will work towards government and construction guidelines and you will be kept updated at each stage. Should we need to come into your home, we have robust risk assessments and safe methods of work in place.


Proposed housing improvement works

We use information about our properties to establish which of our homes are due for improvements and when this work will take place. Our housing stock database tells us the age of items such as kitchens, bathrooms and boilers, and when they are likely to need replacing. 

If your property is due an upgrade, we will be in touch to arrange a visit to your home to carry out a survey. We will confirm improvements works to you in writing.

All the proposed works listed on this page are subject to available funding and full survey of individual properties to determine the exact specification of the work required.
