Improving Neighbourhoods

Improvement works

Improvement works are planned for parts of Lochend and Restalrig and underway in Moredun, Magdalene and Oxgangs to repair buildings and make homes safer, warmer and more comfortable.

In addition to the building improvements, we’re working with the local communities on longer term plans to develop the green spaces surrounding blocks to create spaces that will benefit the local area.

The Council is taking the lead on repairs because we have an obligation as an owner and local authority landlord to maintain and repair homes for our tenants and we share responsibility with other owners to maintain common areas of blocks.

For more information about works on your home, please contact your locality office.
