Estate Walkabouts

Three times a year Housing Officers visit your estate to carry out a walkabout. They check every Melville street and garden, looking out for any safety, hygiene and general tidiness issues affecting the neighbourhood. The types of problems most often brought to our attention include:

  • communal paths and access rights
  • landscaping, grass cutting, hedges and trees
  • litter and fly tipping
  • cars and parking
  • dog mess and nuisance pets
  • vandalism

We investigate every issue raised, and, where necessary, worked with other Melville departments and sometimes other organisations, such as the local council or the Police, to find a solution.

Find out the outcome of the most recent round of walkabouts.
