Estate walkabouts & outcomes

What is an estate walkabout?

Estate walkabouts involve tenants and residents joining Berneslai Homes staff on regular estate inspections. These inspections are often attended by local members, other council departments such as Neighbourhood Services and other agencies such as the local Safer Neighbourhood Team.

The walkabout looks at all aspects of the estate’s condition including gardens, highway issues, litter and dog fouling in order to monitor and improve the appearance of your estates.  Any issues identified are recorded and referred to the appropriate agency for attention.  If you would like to join us on our next walkabout, we would be pleased to see you.

When is my next estate walkabout?

This is a list of estate walkabouts in your area. If you are aware of any issues which require our attention, please let us know by e-mail to:  so that we can give it our attention whilst out on the estate.  We will provide an update on issues identified and action taken.
