Scrutiny panel a driving force for garage changes 

A group of community-minded tenants met this month to approve our improvement actions, following their garage review.

The Scrutiny Panel made a number of recommendations as part of a six-month review into how we let and maintain garages. We have now agreed an action plan, including carrying our quicker inspections of empty garages, completing repairs to an agreed standard before renting out again, introducing a planned maintenance programme to keep garages in good condition and ensuring rent is collected by monthly Direct Debit in advance.

Thank you to all panel members who gave their time to complete this important work.
