Residents moving into the first flats revamped as part of a £160 million Park Hill regeneration project have complained about leaking roofs and heating problems.

People who bought some of the first revamped properties in the complex praised their new homes earlier this year.

But Nicola Renwick, who moved into one of the 78 apartments - owned by a private landlord - said: “What’s my favourite building? Well certainly not Park Hill flats.

“The flat roof leaked the day before I moved in and I had no heating for five weeks during the heavy snowfall and inside temperatures of eight degrees. Not to mention other tenants having no water for weeks at a time.”

An Urban Splash spokeswoman said: “There were initial teething problems in a small number of apartments, accentuated by conditions last winter. We are pleased to say that the heating system is now more effective and efficient.”
