Managing the Area You Live In

Estate Walkabouts

Carrying out quarterly estate walkabouts is an important part of your Neighbourhood Manager's role.

These walkabouts enable your Neighbourhood Manager to:

  • Provide a more visible  and proactive presence on our estates
  • Create a greater neighbourhood focus
  • Ensure that our areas continue to provide a pleasant and safe environment for our communities

Where do you as tenants fit into this?  Well, you know what the main issues of concern are in your area, such as fly tipping, grafitti and anti-social behaviour hotspots.  Your contribution in pointing these out is invaluable to your Neighbourhood Manager in helping them address them.  You are most welcome to go along on these walkabouts so you can show them the issues and discuss ways to resolve them.  They really appreciate your company! 

We do need to get more tenants involved in working with us, so if you are interested in coming along on one of the estate walkabouts please contact 0300 126 3000 and ask for your Neighbourhood Manager or call  the Tenant Engagement Officer on 01536 535649.  Walkabouts usually last around two hours but you don't have to attend the whole session, if you want to focus on one or two areas that is ok.
