External works programme

The external overview programme is a 7 year cyclical painting, repairing and replacement programme. The elements included in the works are internal and external walls, soffits, fascias, guttering, downpipes and cladding.

The external overview contract was awarded to Axis Europe Plc in July 2010 and since then the programme has predominately been replacing soffits, fascias, guttering and downpipes with plastic systems. External painting has been carried out where necessary and in internal communal areas, full chemical strips have taken place to remove the previous layers of paint and a new fire and graffiti proof paint put on. Residents have been involved in the choice of colours. Axis are provided a property list each year which is issued by Ward, all properties external work is due to be completed by March 2017.
