Dundee City Council approves £1.6m housing investment

Dundee City CouncilDundee City Council has backed proposals which will see more than £1.6 million of improvements to council houses across the city.

Members of the council’s housing committee unanimously supported the huge investment across the housing stock yesterday and will now seek to award a number of tenders including window replacement and external concrete work.

John Alexander committee convener said: “Our tenants currently enjoy homes which meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standard, but we are in no way complacent about that and will continue to invest in the housing stock.

“Following our £157m of investment over the last few years, our commitment to tenants is clear and progress is ongoing through our ambitious plans to drive up standards. We want all of our properties to stand the test of time and to be enjoyed by families for decades to come.”

Kevin Cordell, depute convener of housing committee, added: “These works will ensure that homes are well maintained so that they can provide warm, easy to heat and energy efficient places to live in the city for another generation.”

Window replacements at more than 100 homes in the Douglas area, along with roof replacements at four cottages in Clement Park were recommended to go the council environment department’s contract services division with concrete work at houses across the city to be awarded to Forfar company Anderson Specialist Contracting.
