Please read this important information if you are a tenant with a garden:
Making the most of your garden
If you have a garden as part of your tenancy, ensure you read our 'Gardens to be proud of' leaflet. This will give you advice on how to manage your garden, plus a reminder of your responsibilities and the standards we expect.
Whether you are already "green-fingered" and experienced, or are completely new to gardening, the BBC website has some helpful advice:
As standard we will fit a privacy panel with chain link between front and back gardens. We will only fit 6 foot timber fencing if the fence is adjacent to a public footpath.
If a fence is in need of repair, we generally fix it like for like, although if more than half of the fence needs replacing then it will be replaced with chain link fencing.
Please note that fencing repairs are classified as routine repairs and will not be treated as urgent unless there is a risk to health and safety. It is the responsibility of tenants to ensure the safety and security of pets and children.
