£197m home improvement works begin

  • 24th November 2022

  • Customer news

We know how important it is that we keep your home warm, safe and in great condition. That’s why we now have a new team of contractors who will be working with us over the next seven years to carry out £197 million worth of home improvements.

The improvements they will be carrying out for us are called planned investment works. This includes new bathrooms, kitchens, roofs, windows and doors. They will also be working on major refurbishments – these include modernising whole blocks and building safety work.

You will not need to contact us in order to be considered for these upgrades.

Each contractor will be working in a set geographic area, so they will get to know your estate and community really well. They will be recognisable by the logo on their uniforms and vans.

Wates are working in Blakenall, Bloxwich Central, Bloxwich North, Bloxwich West, Goscote, Harden, Leamore, New Invention, Short Heath, Willenhall East and Willenhall West.

United Living are working in Bentley, Caldmore, Darlaston, Moxley, North Walsall and Pleck.

Kier are working in Aldridge, Brownhills Pelsall and Walsall Wood.

My neighbour is having improvement work done. Why aren’t I?
You may not get the same work done as your neighbour, as works vary from property to property according to age and condition. For example, dependent on condition we aim to replace kitchens every 20 years and bathrooms every 30.
