New repairs and and maintenance contractor

Uttlesford District Council has appointed a new contractor to carry out the repairs and maintenance of its properties.

Tenants should be advised that outstanding requests for property repairs will be carried out by the new contractor. Requests that have been made for emergency repairs will be prioritised.
