We regularly carry out works to ensure our properties are safe, and meet the required building and regulatory standards, with programmes of work to make sure we continue to meet these standards. The Scottish Government introduced new fire safety legislation earlier this year, and we have developed a programme of works to meet these.
Fire Safety work will be carried out in 2019 in properties in Ayton, Burnmouth, Chirnside, Cockburnspath, Coldingham, Cranshaws, Duns, Eyemouth, Gordon, Grantshouse, Greenlaw, Hume, Leitholm, Paxton, Preston, Reston, St Abbs, Swinton. Surveys of the properties included in this phase of the programme have been surveyed, and if your home is included we will contact you about when the work will start and who your contact officer for the work will be.
This programme of safety works includes electrical safety checks and we will be carrying these out in a number of homes within the following areas:
Allanton, Ayton, Burnmouth, Chirnside, Cockburnspath, Coldingham, Coldstream, Eyemouth, Gordon, Grantshouse, Greenlaw, Leitholm, Longformacus, Paxton, Preston, Reston, Spittal, Swinton, Tweedmouth, Westruther.
If your home is included in this programme, we will contact you and advise you of the timescales and who your contact officer will be.
We will be surveying homes over the year, to let us develop the next phases of our improvement and maintenance programmes, and we will contact you to advise you if your home is involved in these phases.
