Independent condition surveys

Independent surveys were carried out on all of the council's older care homes which looked at the condition of the buildings - including their suitability, structure, roofing, wiring, fire safety measures, heating systems and kitchens.

The independent surveys contained estimates for the cost of work on the homes. It should be noted that these costs are estimates as at May 2019 and are not likely to fully reflect the actual costs of refurbishment.

Since the condition reports were carried out, essential maintenance work has been carried out in the homes in line with health and safety requirements. Work has also been carried out in all the homes to further reduce fire risks including installing new fire doors, installing emergency lighting and upgrading alarm systems.
