Planned Maintenance

Smoke alarm 2 detail

Prospect's Planned Maintenance Programme has restarted with a focus on smoke alarms, electrical testing and external painting. As a community-based housing association we aim to provide good quality homes in attractive, safe environments and we put significant investment into our housing stock to ensure this. Our planned maintenance programme incorporates ongoing maintenance, required replacements, planned improvements and regular inspections/ testing.

All remaining properties that still require new smoke detectors will be contacted soon to arrange access for our contractor to undertake this work. Changes to legislation mean new compulsory standards for smoke alarms for all homes in Scotland, with the regulations coming into force in 2021. This legislation was brought in as part of Scottish Government’s response to the tragic Grenfell Tower fire. With fire safety being a priority for us, we want to make sure all Prospect homes meet the new requirements as soon as possible. We have also restarted electrical testing, and our external painting programme is progressing at Clovenstone Drive and will move to Clovenstone Park soon. All our contractors have the appropriate controls in place as outlined by the Scottish Government.
