Making improvements to your council home
If you are a secure tenant you have the right to carry out improvements to your home. You will need the council's written permission before you start any work.
These improvements include fitting new:
- electric points
- room heaters
- kitchen cupboards
- loft insulation
- plumbing for a new washing machine or dish washer
You should contact Housing Services giving details of what you propose, including a drawing if relevant. A council officer may visit you to discuss the work.
