Planned repairs programmes

We have a planned programme of repairs which cover regular maintenance and longer term improvements.

Cyclical maintenance programmes are repairs which are required at regular intervals. Because of this we are able to plan them in advance every year. For instance gas servicing, painting and lift maintenance.

Planned maintenance programmes are repairs which can be planned in advance by the Housing Department using the annual allocation of resources. Planned maintenance programmes include the installation of new PVCu windows and external doors, and the installation of modern central heating systems and kitchens and bathrooms.

How often do they take place?

Cyclical maintenance

We aim to:

  • Decorate the outside of each home and internal communal areas every 12 years
  • Test each domestic electrical installation every 10 years
  • Service each domestic central heating system every year
  • Fully service communal lifts every year

Planned maintenance programmes

Please contact your District Housing Office to find out whether any planned maintenance programmes are due to be carried out in your area.

What are major works?

Major works are a maintenance scheme where several major elements of construction are refurbished to a property. This qualifies to work for a major works agreement.

A major works agreement is a binding document which is designed to give the tenants affected by the major works a voice in the proceedings. On schemes where tenants are living in their own homes whilst the work continues they may be represented, on request, on a Building Advisory Group (BAG). The group will meet at regular intervals during the span of the work.
