Safety works to Markfield Drive flats

Works are underway on the flats

A £200,000 investment in improvements to the flats on Markfield Drive began last week.

For some time residents in the area have been telling us about their worries about the state of the stairwells, where worn steps have become unsafe during wet and icy weather, whilst anti-social behaviour has also occured in the area with lines of sight being obscured by the brick walls.

The works are intended to help address these concerns, and are being included alongside a programme of door replacements. The doors on all the properties will be upgraded to be more fire safe.

Your local Labour team are pleased to see the concerns of local residents being addressed, and the council’s housing budget being used to support council tenants here.
