Tenants in Pontefract get a sneak preview with WDH!

Published 6 March 2017

Fifteen tenants and residents from The Avenues in Pontefract wrapped up warm to join WDH’s Homebuilder Team for a tour of their estate to find out what they can expect when work begins on their gardens.

This project at The Avenues aims to improve the local area, will see WDH provide off street parking for some residents, new boundary walls, fencing and gates. The scheme will also create two new green spaces for local residents to enjoy and is due to be completed in summer 2017.

Tenants who took part in the site tour got to see gardens at all stages from those where work had just begun to the final finished space.

Angie Connell, WDH’s Programme Officer, said: “We usually send out letters regarding works starting but felt a site walk would be much more useful for tenants and help them understand what their gardens would look like at each stage of the process. We had a good turnout and found it worked extremely well.”

Mr Lockston, a tenant from North Avenue who attended the site walk, said: “The site walk was very interesting. It gave me a much better understanding about what work will be carried out in my garden than simply getting a letter in the post.”

Mrs Scales, a tenant from Love Lane added: “Well done WDH, the site walk was fantastic and very informative! I now have a much clearer idea about what work will be taking place in my garden and why I need to move certain things in preparation.”

Perevez Khaliq, WDH’s Project Officer, said: “The tenants really enjoyed the walk and found it very useful. We plan to use more of these as part of our induction process for tenants to really help us increase customer satisfaction.”

Residents had fun at our 50th Homebuilder property celebration

Published 12 November 2015

Local residents braved the weather to take part in celebrations at Waterton Court, Crofton to mark the completion of WDH’s 50th new build property by our Homebuilder Team of skilled tradespeople.

The streets had been decorated ready for Halloween and everyone who attended was encouraged to take home a pumpkin to carve.

The event also included hot drinks and cake for everyone, the chance to win some shopping vouchers with a raffle and lots of activities for children.

Members of WDH’s Engagement Team, Home builder Team and Anne Britton, Tenant Involvement Officer were involved in the day’s festivities which were well attended by residents.

Adam Green, WDH’s Homebuilder Manager said: “It was nice to be able to repay the patience of the local residents and meet the new tenants moving in. it’s important for Homebuilder to be able to thank everyone and show our appreciation to the community with such an event.

“It was great to see the children enjoy themselves and the weather was relatively kind and didn’t seem to deter some very interested locals.”
