Ipswich Borough Council's planned maintenance programme ensures that the outsides of all council houses are well looked after. We aim to repair and paint the outside of our council homes every seven years.
Areas which could see maintenance undertaken include replacement windows and doors, roofing including guttering and chimneys, decorating and refurbishment to relevant brick areas, rain water down pipes and property pathways.
Approximately six weeks before the programme begins, our Clerk of Works Officer will visit your home to decide what repairs are needed. You will be provided with the name of the contractor who will carry out the work before any work begins and we will carry out inspections during the work, and after it has been completed.

We will not carry out the Planned Maintenance Programme on your council house if you are planning to buy it under the Right to Buy scheme.
If you have decided to buy your home, you must inform your Housing Officer before the work starts, otherwise you will have to repay the cost of the work carried out.
