Norma lives in one of our Housing for Older People (HOPS) schemes. She is just one of many residents who regularly enjoys sitting in the paved area that was created as a space to relax and catch up with friends; it has been frequently used during the fantastic summer of 2018.
Last year the landscaped areas in this development benefitted from the hedges and borders being tidied up so that residents could better utilise the areas for planting pots. The scheme has also recently had additional fencing replaced which provides additional security and privacy.
The landscaped areas in this scheme are part of 137 communal areas across the Leeds Federated portfolio of homes. These regularly receive grounds maintenance from our Community Spaces Team. The team serves over 1600 tenants in total.
Our in house cleaners deliver a comprehensive cleaning service across many of our properties in Leeds and in 2017 we expanded the service to our North Yorkshire residents too.
As well as gardening, cleaning and fire testing our Community Spaces Team work includes; environmental cleans, fly tipped waste removal, dirty needle/sharps collections and disposal and graffiti removal.
