Estate Improvement Budget Consultation
We want to improve how we manage the Estate Upgrading budget to make sure that tenants, tenant groups and Elected Members have more say on how the budget is used. We would like to hear your views about the changes we are proposing
Why we want to change how we manage the Estate Upgrading budget
When we have reviewed how the budget has been spent in recent years, it showed that the Capital Programmes Team have been driving forward most of the estate upgrade programmes. The influence of tenants, tenant groups and Elected Members to shape these improvements is less than was intended. This is not what was envisaged when the Estate Management Policy was developed.
Discussions with key staff and the Moray Tenants’ Forum revealed a lack of clarity and coordination about the environmental audits and the improvement programmes that flow from these.
What we want to change
We are consulting on the following changes:
- a change to the range of works that can be delivered
- how often we carry out estate walkabouts
- how we report on our plans for estate upgrades
- how often we report on our plans
- a change to how we allocated the budget
The easiest way of completing the consultation is by accessing it online.
If you have any questions, please phone 0300 123 4566.
The consultation will end on 31 January 2017.
Your feedback is an important part of making sure that we achieve these things. We will analyse all of the responses and use them to make recommendations to the Communities Committee on 7 March 2017.
