When visiting the communal play areas please ensure you adhere to Government guidance by practising social distancing and regularly wash the hands of both yourselves and your children.
The inspection will provide the opportunity to inspect the estate for any Caretaking issues, refuse issues, outstanding repairs, health and safety concerns and any other estate related matters. All return visits will also provide the opportunity to check that repairs have been completed or chase these up if required.
We hope that our estates are maintained to a reasonable standard, and these estate inspections provide the ideal opportunity to monitor this. If you do see any issues on your estate, please do not hesitate to bring this to our attention by speaking to a member of the Contact Centre on 01277 312500 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Information for new or transferring tenants
Any new or transferring tenant is required to pay one weeks rent charge upfront before they receive the keys to their new home.
A group of residents, staff, councillors and representatives of interested organisations have developed and published a framework policy for dealing with complaints about nuisance and anti-social behaviour received by Housing Services.
Anyone found to be vandalising property or creating graffiti on our estates runs the real risk of losing their home or, if under 18, their family's home.
For further information and how to report an instance of anti-social behaviour please visit our Anti-Social Behaviour web page.
Brentwood Borough Council sometimes requires you to fill in an income and expenditure form if there is a need to have a better understanding of your financial circumstances.
Before you begin, it would be useful to have recent bank statements and bills available to refer to.
Please try to be as accurate as possible when filling in the information as incorrect information could lead to problems with the assessment of your circumstances.
There is a calculator included at the top of this form to help you correctly calculate bills that are collected at different increments, such as weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly bills.
