What are planned and major works?

Planned and Major works are types of work that are required to a property for a number of reasons. These include replacement of ‘component’ parts of the property including kitchens, bathroom, roofs, windows, doors etc that have reached the end of their expected lifespan, or require numerous and/or frequent repairs. It therefore becomes more economical to replace the part rather than constantly repair it and by doing this not only improves the condition of the property, but also reduces the number of responsive repairs required.

Dover District Council is also committed to improving homes and to keep our properties in a condition that meets and exceeds where possible, the requirements of the Governments Decent Homes Standard. This gives guidance on how each property must meet four set standards which are:-

That it meets the current statutory minimum standard for housing

  • It is in a reasonable state of repair
  • It has reasonably modern facilities and services
  • It provides a reasonable degree of thermal comfort.

You can find out more information about the Decent Homes Standard.
