Heating repairs a priority in council homes
1:46pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
A HOUSING association has said it is ready for the winter months and a possible surge in demand should heating systems fail.
Colchester Borough Homes, which maintains properties owned by Colchester Council, is gearing up to help tenants under the Right to Repairs scheme.
The government-run initiative commits the housing association to treating a total loss of heating as an emergency and prioritising repairs to central heating.
