Summer series of estate walkabouts by housing officers

19 July 2012

The next in a series of estate walkabouts will take place this August covering areas in Harrogate, Knaresborough and Ripon.

‘Face to Face in Your Neighbourhood’ has been developed so that tenants can meet Housing Officers right on their doorstep to discuss issues that are of concern to them.

Councillor Mike Chambers, Harrogate Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, says that the estate walkabouts have been developed by the Council’s Neighbourhood Services Team but have the support of the Harrogate District Community Safety Partnership.

Councillor Mike Chambers added:

The purpose of the walkabouts is to give tenants the opportunity to raise and discuss issues about their neighbourhood with their local Housing Officers. Council staff will be on hand to identify and deal with problems in a bid to keep the estates clean, tidy and safe.

Many of the issues tenants want to raise include litter, irresponsible dog owners and general anti-social behaviour so the walkabouts will also be supported by the Council’s dog wardens and a representative from the Community Safety Partnership.
