Barnsley Homes Standard Programme

What is the Barnsley Homes Standard Programme?

Following on from the completion of the Decent Homes programme is the Barnsley Homes Standard. We’ve agreed a homes standard with the Tenant Services Authority to make sure our customers’ homes are improved and maintained to a reasonably modern level. We will check the works that will be carried out by Construction Services and Wates Living Space.

What happens during the surveys on properties?

We do an individual survey on each property which tells us what works needs to be done.  The survey looks at the condition of kitchens, bathrooms, central heating systems, electrical systems, doors, windows and any structural works. An individual programme of work is then produced for each property and customers can choose their own fixtures and fittings for kitchens, bathrooms and fires.

What about my safety when works are carried out?

Pre-work inductions are done to make sure you are fully ready and know what to expect during the works. Project Liaison Officers from Berneslai Homes and Wates Living Space will be with you throughout the process.

If you have not been contacted about the programme but need repairs in your home then you should visit ‘report a repair’.
