April’s Estate Walkabouts

Staff will visit over 20 neighbourhoods including: Matson (North, South and Central), Hucclecote, Cathedral City, Tuffley, Coney Hill, White City, Abbeydale, The Lampreys , Robinswood, Longlevens, Elmbridge, Kingsholm, The Oval, Linden, Quedgeley, Holmleigh, Severn, Westgate, Podsmead, Barton and Tredworth.

The walkabouts enable GCH to check each area first hand and to identify any issues and improvements there may be. Items reviewed are things like condition of gardens and communal areas as well as looking out for fly-tipping, investigating potential improvements and repairs and also seeking views from tenants. Tenants and residents are encouraged to get involved and speak to the team during the walkabouts, sharing their local knowledge and opinions with the team.

The quarterly inspections ensure that each neighbourhood is kept in the best condition and that any improvements can be identified.

Each Estate Walkabout is very different and by being out and about we pick up on many items that may not otherwise be identified. The walkabouts provide an easy method for local residents to speak to us and voice any concerns or suggestions.
