The local Housing Leeds Tenancy Officer recently completed an Estate Inspection of the following streets:
During this inspection they identified several local issues across these streets which we have summarised below:
Road Potholes x2
Footway Repair x2
Streets Needing Sweeping x6
Fly Tipping x12
New Tree Maintenances Referrals x1
Other Repairs x2
Vegetation Blocking Footpaths x2
Litter Picks Needed x1
These issues have now been passed on to the relevant council departments to resolve. Issues such as litter picks will be dealt quickly but others, like footway repairs, will be assessed and the work prioritised based on need – meaning some could take a few months to resolve or longer.
Housing Leeds will do an Estate Inspection once every three months and as your councillors, we will complete additional Councillor Area Walks throughout the year to ensure the estate is maintained. We are pleased however to see that following our feedback, the number of issues on the estate being proactively identified by officers has increased.
You can also report general issues on the estate via Leeds City Council website at https://services.leeds.gov.uk/ or if you’re unsure of what option to use – contact us and we can help.
If you are a Housing Leeds tenant and you have a concern about your rented property, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the local housing team on 01135351600.
It is vital residents let us or officers know about local issues. When we identify problems – we will act. But we cannot be everywhere and thus needing your help.
