The Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) requires all social landlords to improve their housing stock to an acceptable level by 2018.
Powys County Council has received £ 3,709,000 from the Welsh Government’s Major Repairs Allowance for the 2017/18 financial year which will contribute to the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) improvements.
Larger refurbishments to kitchens, bathrooms, central heating, roofs, rendering, windows/doors, heating and rewiring are planned and scheduled by us in order to meet the WHQS standards.
Before any works are carried out at your property you will receive a letter from Powys County Council together with our Information Booklet advising you what works are due to be carried out and the details of the contractor who will be doing the work. This will then be followed up by the contractors who will contact you to arrange to carry out a survey and explain the works.
Once any works have been completed, it would be very helpful to us if you could spare the time to complete the WHQS questionnaire.
All returned questionnaires will be entered into our £100 prize draw which will take place after April 30th 2017.
