Improving Your Home
If you want to improve your home or garden by making alterations or providing extra facilities, you must have our written permission first.
If we do grant permission for any improvements, we will expect you to follow a set of conditions that we will provide you with. These conditions will only be in the interests of safety or the need to get planning or building regulations permission from the council and it is also to make sure the work is of a good standard. You can apply for permission using the form below:
Once you have applied for permission to make an alteration or improvement, we will reply to all requests within 28 days.
All permission requests must be made in writing, giving full details of the proposed works and you must keep to any reasonable conditions given. All works will be treated as a condition of your tenancy agreement, if you do not keep to any conditions you will have broken your tenancy agreement.
If we turn down your application to carry out the works we will tell you in writing why we have refused. If you think it the reason stated is unreasonable, you can use our Complaints procedure
