Erimus Housing aims to deliver a major programme of modernisation and improvement, to provide all tenants with housing that is first choice for rented accomodation, in Middlesbrough.
An estimated five-year, £103m repair and improvement programme will ensure that tenants' homes meet the Government’s Decent Homes target by 2010. The Tenant Offer document outlined a menu of improvement 'promises' during the first five years after transfer. These being:
A 15% stock condition survey of the houses was completed in 2003 and this was used to formulate a five year improvement plan. Two external contractors, Dunelm Property Services (DPS) and ROK have been appointed, and work with Erimus Building Services (EBS) to complete the work.
The fifth year of the investment programme is already underway, and the address list is in the Investment Programme section on this website. Subsequent programmes and address lists will appear as soon as they have been confirmed and agreed. People living in these homes will also be notified by letter, and informed who will be working on their houses. Information is updated regularly as it happens, and will be communicated by letter, local meetings and be posted on this website.
