Residents show their refurbished properties to local MP

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Sheltered housing residents in Heeley showed their transformed flats to Meg Munn, Sheffield MP for Heeley and local Councillor Rosemary Telfer recently. They are amongst almost 11,000 tenants who have benefited from the Decent Homes programme of improvements to council properties carried out by Sheffield Homes.


At Cambridge Court, 36 flats have received a makeover, including new kitchens, bathrooms and double-glazing. For the first time, the tenant’s studio flats now have their own bathrooms, meaning they don't have to share communal facilities. Four studios have been made into two two-bedroom flats, to meet the demand for larger retirement properties. Residents could select the new fittings for their flats, which include features especially designed for older people.


Meg said:


‘The programme has been well co-ordinated, with residents consulted every step of the way. The end result is excellent for the residents who I know are delighted with the end result.’


Councillor Telfer added:


‘Kier and Sheffield Homes have done a wonderful job. They have lifted these properties to 21st century standards, which our older people deserve.’


Comments from happy customers included:


Mrs Ball: "The first time I saw my flat I was speechless. It is lovely. I got on very well with the Kier workforce, both young and old. Nothing was too much trouble for them."


Mrs Czerwinski: "I would like to say how much I appreciate the work Sheffield Homes and Kier have done on my flat. They've done a wonderful job."


The Decent Homes programme, which is the largest of its type in the country, will see over 40,000 council homes improved in Sheffield.
