Your estate

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

1. Overview

We aim to ensure our council-managed estates and communal areas are well maintained, safe, attractive places that people can enjoy and take pride in (through the delivery of effective estate management).

Estate Management is a vital part of housing management and a particularly important service from a resident’s viewpoint.  The Chartered Institute of Housing uses the term in its widest sense to refer to property management and services to tenants and leaseholders (residents) which aim to enable them to have quiet enjoyment of their homes and a decent, safe and secure environment.

Estate Management covers activities such as (but not exclusively):

  • Caretaking
  • Communal area maintenance
  • Communal area cleaning
  • Grounds maintenance
  • Rubbish collection
  • Removal of abandoned vehicles
  • Removal of graffiti
  • Management of garages, sheds and other estate buildings
  • Estate inspections
  • Dog fouling
  • Infestations / pests
  • General look and feel of the area
  • Health and safety controls
