Council tenants in Chesterfield are benefitting from a series of improvements to their neighbourhoods.
Work is currently being carried out by Chesterfield Borough Council in St Helen’s ward, amongst others, including Flamsteed Crescent, Chantrey Avenue and Malson Way, providing enclosures for tenants to place their bins in communal garden areas and resurfacing car park areas owned and maintained by the council.
This is part of a first phase of work in a £6 million plan to be delivered over five years, which has been drawn up after consultation with residents who have identified which improvements would be of the most benefit to them.
Typical works will include, works to surfacing on garage sites, drying areas, footpaths, fencing and gates.
Councillor Helen Bagley, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for customers and communities said, “One of our key priorities is to improve the quality of life for local people.
Our tenants have identified that having somewhere secure to put their bins and somewhere to park their car safely is important to them and this is why we have developed this series of improvements.”
Chesterfield Borough Council is the biggest landlord in Chesterfield, managing 9,400 houses, flats, maisonettes and garages in the borough.
Previous estate improvements carried out in the last year include: new areas for tenants to dry their clothes, in areas including New Whittington and Loundsley Green as well as improvements to garages and gardens in Newbold.
