Housing improvements continue.

A PROGRAMME to improve council-owned sheltered housing schemes is continuing to transform tenants' homes in Caerphilly county borough.

The council's Caerphilly Homes team will be investing about PS10m in improvements at a number of its sheltered housing schemes between now and 2020.

Improvements to these schemes are being carried out as part of its wider PS220m Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) programme.

Woodland View sheltered housing scheme in Wattsville is currently undergoing a transformation as part of the programme.

Hazel Vaux and Gloria Dalton are both tenants at Woodland View who have recently had internal improvements completed as part of the programme.

At Mrs Vaux's home, a new kitchen and bathroom were installed and an electrical rewire carried out.

She said: "I've had my kitchen and bathroom completely re-done through

the programme and I can't fault any of the work.

"I'm particularly happy with the new flooring that's been fitted. All the staff that worked here were really helpful."

Improvements at Mrs Dalton's flat included a new kitchen, works to the bathroom and an electrical rewire.

Mrs Dalton said: "I'm really pleased with the WHQS work that's been carried out so far here, at Woodland View.

" I sent a card to thank the workforce; they deserved it for all their hard work."

Improvements at both Mrs Vaux and Mrs Dalton's homes were undertaken by the council's in-house work forces, who are delivering the WHQS programme at sheltered housing schemes.

The team is also delivering half of the council's wider WHQS programme.
