Tell Us Your Concerns on Estate Walkabouts

Engaging with residents

Community-led solutions are important to Castle Vale Community Housing (CVCH) which is why we are keen to engage with our tenants at every opportunity.

Our patch walkabouts give tenants the chance to raise any concerns and issues they have to us, whether it be about their property, the street they live in or the Castle Vale estate in general.

These regular get-togethers are co-ordinated to provide residents with direct access to our CVCH Neighbourhood Officers and members of our Assets and Estates teams. People can speak to them about things like anti-social behaviour, building repairs, fly-tipping, roads and noise pollution.

Resident Engagement Officer at CVCH, Vikash Mistry, helps to orchestrate the walks.

“It is an ideal opportunity for our tenants to speak to us about what’s important to them” he said.

“As the estate landlord we take our responsibilities very seriously and want to make sure tenants are happy and safe in their home, but also in the community they live.”

The walkabouts have been established to allow CVCH officers and residents to work together on highlighting and tackling environmental issues and communal area problems; to raise awareness of hot-spots for fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour and areas of the estate which could be improved.

“Working together gives us a better chance to creating and implementing the solutions that tenants want,” adds Vik.

Scheduled walkabouts in the coming weeks are as follows:

  • Tuesday 13 February – Henshaw from 10-11:30am
  • Weds 14 February – Sowrey from 10-11:30am
  • Monday 19th February – Fairclough from 10-11:30am
