Changes to WDH’s services at Normanton Service Access Point (SAP)21 September 2016

Published 21 September 2016
The way that people access our services is changing. Over the last few years there has been a reduction in the number of people using our Service Access Points (SAPs) and an increase in people self-serving and completing transactions online. It is because of these changes that we will be closing Normanton SAP on Friday 30 September 2016.

Tenants think digital photo guide is brilliant22 February 2019

Published 22 February 2019
Tenants in Lupset have being giving their feedback on a new digital photo guide, created by our Improvements Team to help tenants understand what they can expect when having their homes improved. The guide, which can be shown on an iPad or tablet, will be used by Resident Liaison Officers during the tenant induction process to explain what will happen at every stage of the works and prompt the tenant to ask more questions. This will hopefully lead to a reduction in the number of complaints that are often received at the beginning of a scheme of works.
