Work on refurbishing temporary accommodation flats at Pendeen Court is now complete, providing much improved living and communal areas for some of the borough’s most in need resident. All flats were given a facelift with new kitchens, bathrooms, high security front doors, internal doors, windows, electrical re-wiring and full redecoration.
The communal areas have also benefited from the upgrade with the provision of new key-less secure door entrance systems, new windows, CCTV, replacement of all rainwater goods and removal of graffiti throughout. The laundrette has been refurbished with new energy efficient machines. Externally, landscaping works and upgrade of the children’s play area (which is still in progress) complement the refurbishment works.
Cllr Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing and finance, said:
“I am delighted the refurbishment works at Pendeen Court are complete, this upgrade will make a huge difference to the individuals and families who are housed here, sometimes under difficult circumstances. Labour is committed to ensuring our facilities and community buildings meet modern standards, which is why we are continuing to invest resources across the borough to make this.”
