Decent Homes on Wenlock Barn Estate

Hoxton's largest Estate Napier Grove, has become the latest recipient of the Decent Homes Programme.

Recurring questions about starting dates for thre Decent Homes programme hinted at residents’ lack of confidence in the programme but, when scaffolding started going up and workmen began knocking on doors to gain entry to replace windows across the estate, things quickly changed.

We have been receiving positive feedback since work has been underway and we wanted to see for ourselves what was being done so spent time inspecting the new roof and windows on Napier Court.

New membrane, insulation board, felt covering and asphelt have gone down to inslute the block from both hot and cold weather. This should last for another 30 years but it could be compromised if there is ongoing unauthorised access to install satalite dishes.

The work should take 6-7 weeks to complete and we will be back again to see the finished product and we will continue checking on the programme as it roles out across the ward.

We welcome you comments about the decent homes programne. Let us know what you experience has been – positive or negative.
