Tim Stockings, Haig Housing Chief Executive and David Williams, Chair of Trustees will be visiting Princess Elizabeth Court during the morning of Wednesday 22nd November. They will be keen to discuss the situation with as many of our tenants as they can during the visit.
The safety of our residents is our top priority and all properties are currently being checked for electrical safety and are being made water-tight and secure before the weekend.
We are also working on the next stage to begin the repairs to your homes and are working closely with our insurers and contractors to arrange and plan a schedule of works. Our priority will be those homes that are to remain occupied.
Individual plans will be discussed with residents in the coming weeks and from that there will be some assessment of timelines. For those who have moved out of their homes, viewings of new properties should be arranged shortly for those that are not making alternate arrangements. We will help arrange storage for resident’s belongings and removals where this is necessary.
We will ensure that no resident will be left financially disadvantaged by these moves and the full extent of the disturbance payments available will be discussed individually.
Haig is also in contact with other local organisations to identify other sources of support.
