Neighbourhood Inspections

Join the housing team on your local Neighbourhood Inspection. The inspections are an opportunity for residents to share any concerns and help us identify problems in their area.

As part of the inspection, you will be involved in checking the condition of your neighbourhood, buildings and communal areas. You can advise on issues such as caretaking, rubbish and fly-tipping, as well as reporting any repairs in your neighbourhood. If a problem is identified team members will do their best to put it right.

Neighbourhood Inspection dates summer 2022

Please note the following:

  • All Neighbourhood Inspections start at 9:30am
  • Some inspections - particularly rural inspections - will involve travel by car between different locations. You will need your own transport for these inspections. 
  • Inspections may take up to three hours, so comfortable footwear is recommended. Please note, you do not need to take part in the whole inspection, you are welcome to join us for part of it. 
  • Inspections may go ahead in all weather, so warm, shower-proof clothing is suggested and/or sunscreen, if applicable
  • Please note that the inspections may not end at the original meeting point

Neighbourhood Inspection dates are subject to change, so please double-check the dates closer to the time before heading out to the inspection.
