Estate services: Communal areas and grounds

Estate improvements and inspections

We aim to improve the quality of life for our residents by making our estates cleaner, greener, and safer.

We manage Minor Estate Improvement (MEI) projects which are used to improve estates or to reduce crime. Estate inspections are a good opportunity to discuss these projects with officers, Councillors and residents.

For details of when the inspections are due see the Estate inspections programme 2023-24
