Following a number of residents on Sherburn Road Estate getting in touch with me to say there was a big issue with damp homes, I met with North East housing association Bernicia to raise this matter, and ask that action be taken. I’m really pleased that Bernicia responded so positively to mine and local residents requests for improvement works to be carried out, and over the past four months, a total of 155 houses owned by Bernicia have been insulated, and had new roofs installed.
The difference this work has made to these properties is amazing, and is more than any of use hoped for. It has given the houses a new lease of life, and tenants are very pleased with the outcome.
I was also really pleased that Bernicia used Esh Living to carry out this work. Esh is a construction company based in Durham, and the work they have carried out is of a very high standard.
My thanks go to everyone involved in this scheme for their hard work. You can read more about this project here:
