Planned upgrades to your home

What we plan to upgrade

The Scottish Government sets East Lothian Council a target of raising the standard of all its properties to meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS).

The programme of work

We are unable to specify the exact month the work will be carried. About six months before work starts we will contact you to discuss the timetable. Our kitchen supplier, or in the case of bathrooms a staff member, will visit your home to review the layout and give you a choice of units/colours from a select range. If you have any queries about upcoming works contact the Contact Centre on 01875 824311.

We have a leaflet which describes what happens, when your bathroom is replaced.

Tenants with additional needs

If you have mobility issues, we will arrange for one of our housing occupational therapists to visit. These planning visits will ensure that your finished kitchen or bathroom meets your requirements. For more information on Occupational Therapist assessments, see Adaptations to Council Homes.
