Communal areas

Our caretaking and neighbourhood teams work hard to ensure that our communal areas remain clear and tidy. This not only keeps these spaces safe but also ensures easy access for all, including residents, visitors and the emergency services. Below, we've put together some useful information to make it easier for our customers to keep communal areas clear, tidy and safe for all to enjoy.

Looking after your communal areas

It's important to avoid leaving unnecessary items and clutter in communal areas for various reasons, such as health and safety. This includes preventing trip hazards, reducing fire risks and ensuring that people can safely and quickly exit in case of an emergency. By keeping these areas clear, we also help ensure items don't obstruct fire or rescue services in an emergency.

Our communal gardens should be tidy and safe spaces for all residents. To maintain this, please keep these areas free from items such as outdoor furniture, paddling pools, barbeques or bonfires.

Please be aware that we will remove any items left in communal areas and gardens, in line with our clear communal areas policy.

Be mindful of other people who also use your communal areas and gardens by keeping noise levels down, disposing of litter correctly, avoiding damage to property and garden features and cleaning up after pets.

If you would like to host an event in a communal area, please get in touch with us for approval first. If approved, we will let you know of any conditions you have to follow. To enquire about holding an event on Selwood Housing property or land get in touch with us at 01225 715 715 or info@selwoodhousing.com.

For more information, read our clear communal area policy and our neighbourhood management policy.

Delighted to see this update from the YMCA Green Shoots nursery in Studley Green. The charity was awarded a grant from our Stronger Communities Fund to help block pave a gravelled area of the garden, opening it up for more children to use. The paved areas provide a smooth surface and an area for those who need smaller, quieter spaces to play in. ... See MoreSee Less

Many boilers will need to have their system pressure topped up with water at some stage. To check if your boiler needs to be topped up, locate the pressure gauge on the front of the system. If the dial is too low and is in the red, then you will need to repressurise it. If your boiler's pressure is too low, it can prevent the system from heating up efficiently, which could lead to a loss of hot water. If your boiler's pressure is too high, you can request an appointment for our repairs team to come out to your home: ecs.page.link/bbvqK ... See MoreSee Less

Lol, I topped my pressure up on my boiler after being shown.. but what the engineer forgot to mention is the pressure increases when heating is on anyway, so don't pressurise when off as like me my pressure was over 4 and I needed an emergency call out . It is not as easy as just being shown.
