Community walkabouts

Community walkabouts are your opportunity to tell us what would make your community a better place to live, and how we can work together to achieve this. Community walkabouts look at issues like:

  • community initiatives; volunteering, safety, well-being
  • estate environment; parking, lighting, signs, play areas, gardens, waste
  • anti-social behaviour issues; fly-tipping, dog fouling, noise
  • some planned repairs and maintenance (though these can also be discussed on more frequent estate inspections - see our community events calendar for dates).

Each area has a community walkabout once a year.

They are open to all residents and are attended by SHP’s Managing Director, your Housing Manager, Estate Manager and our repairs contractor Mears. We also invite ward councilors and Sutton Council officers, police and safer neighbourhood teams and the residents’ association connected to the community.

Estates also have more frequent estate inspections. These focus more on the physical environment of the estate. They are attended by an SHP surveyor, your Housing Manager and Mears repairs colleagues. These look at communal repairs, cleaning and caretaking, grass cutting and estate infrastructure (e.g. bin stores). Check our community events calendar or drop us an email for dates.
