Eastleigh Borough Council is carrying out a survey to monitor the condition of residential properties within Eastleigh borough. According to the Council this is a legal duty which must be performed every five years.
The survey will be conducted in partnership with CPC (Capital Project Consultancy) and who will carry out the work. On their website CPC states that within their Housing and Renewal Division they ‘specialise in providing expert advice in the Housing, Urban Renewal and Community Engagement and related fields. Currently the market leader in the delivery of house condition surveys, and housing led Urban Renewal our large portfolio of satisfied clients confirms our expertise in serving both the public and private sectors.’
The number of residential properties to be surveyed is 1,500 and these have all been chosen at random by computer from a list of the residential addresses in Eastleigh with CPC (using Eastleigh Borough Council headed paper) writing directly to occupiers.
The Council say that all letters to book appointments have now gone out – so if you’re in Hedge End and have received notification that your home will be surveyed, it would be really interesting to hear of your experience.
The Council will use the results of the survey to bid for housing funding from Central Government. They say accurate information is needed to apply for funding and without it funding could even be reduced.
All surveyors will carry a CPC identity card and an authorisation letter from Eastleigh Borough Council with their photograph on.
