Estate Walkabouts

Meet Other Residents, Housing Officers and Estate Wardens

Estate Walkabouts are an excellent way to meet local residents, the Housing Officers and Estate Wardens for each area, and offer an ideal opportunity to look at areas of land or places where improvements could be made on our housing areas.

In some cases, other agencies such as the Police, Parish and District Councillors and Highways Officers have also attended, leading to effective partnership working to bring about positive changes and improvements. The walkabouts have helped to identify some of the projects and schemes which have benefited from funding from the Community and Environmental Budget and 'Operation Quality Streets' events.

WalkaboutGet Involved

If you have an idea for your neighbourhood, such as a notice board, community grit bin, or something much bigger, such as a parking scheme or community garden, attending a walkabout with your Housing Officer and other agencies can be a very good place to start.
