Have your say

Tenants and leaseholders are being asked to have their say about proposals to alter council housing services in Sheffield.

One of the cost-cutting measures being mooted is replacing bathrooms every 25 years instead of every 20 years.

Councillor Jayne Dunn, Sheffield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “The Government is pushing through policies which will mean significantly less money for council housing services, repairs and investment into homes. “This has forced us to look at our long term plan for housing and how we can develop proposals that prioritise important services and investment to people’s homes.

“We are already saving money through smarter working and are spending less on repairs because of the improvements we’ve made to homes

“We have now developed some initial ideas which will help keep the long term plan viable and it’s only right we invite every tenant to have their say.”
