Housing surgeries in Purfleet and Stanford

A PROGRAMME of monthly housing surgeries has been rolled out in Purfleet and Stanford to replace the closure of the local offices in those areas.

These surgeries are part of the council’s aim to deliver a more personalised and flexible service for tenants as well as to lessen the amount of time housing staff spend in the office, so that more time can be spent with tenants on the estates and in their homes.

Each surgery will focus on a specific topic such as caretaking, grounds maintenance, support to live in your home, allocations and rent payment, to name a few.

Local estate officers will all be present to help and advise along with a specialist on each of the topics.

The first monthly surgery in Purfleet and Aveley will be on Wednesday 14 November at The Forum, High St, Aveley RM15 4BX from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and will focus on Anti-Social Behaviour.

Stanford and Corringham will have their first monthly surgery on 22 November at Impulse Leisure Centre, Springfield Road, SS17 7NB from 9.30am to 12.00 and will be on Repairs.

In addition to the monthly surgeries, there will also be regular drop-in weekly surgeries in Purfleet at the Community Flat, 32 River Court, Centurion Way, RM19 1ZY starting from Wednesdays 14 November 10am to 12.00pm

Stanford will be running similar drop-in fortnightly surgeries for over 55’s only at Odonaghue House, Thors Oak, Stanford-le-hope, Essex. SS17 7LBL, also starting Wednesday 14th November 2012 9.30 am to 11am.
