A focus on…view it

Rob Higgins

Our ‘view it’ estate inspections are a fantastic opportunity for you to get involved and talk face-to-face with one of our people. If there’s something in your community you’re not happy about, these walkarounds give you the opportunity to speak to us and get the changes you want made.

The inspections happen throughout Sheffield and Lincolnshire and are led by our Neighbourhood Wardens Rob Higgins (West) and Frank Dawson (East). Customers are encouraged to join us on these inspections to check out the local area and to raise concerns that you might have.

We spent the morning with Rob on his estate inspection in Woodthorpe and he told us about the importance of estate inspections for the community.

He said: “The estate inspections are important for the local community to get involved and to bring forward suggestions and improvements for the area. It’s also an opportunity to highlight any concerns or information people have about antisocial behaviour.”

“On the estate inspections we go around the estate in approximately one hour. We do try and get as many people involved as possible and we chose a certain route and do a full inspection of that area.

“We have a very structured audit here and we want to show that we do pick up customer concerns that happen in the estates on a regular basis.

“We encourage customers to get involved as it’s their opportunity to speak to us face-to-face. They have my full attention for an hour on a Friday morning and it’s an opportunity for people to express their concerns with us”.
