First flooded homes restored in Bury

Six Town Housing has completed the refurbishment of the first of the homes it manages in Bury on behalf of Bury Council that were affected by flash flooding on Boxing Day 2015.

Six Town Housing’s Repairs Direct have been decanting affected properties on the Dumers and Warth estates, replastering walls, replacing flooring and redecorating rooms that received water damage – including bathrooms and kitchens.

Councillor Mike Connolly, leader of Bury Council, and Hugh Broadbent, Chair of Six Town Housing, visited the tenant in the first home that was refurbished on Warth Road in mid-April.

The tenant, Mr Nuttall (pictured) said, “When the floods hit my home I was dumbstruck, but now I am looking to the future. There’s more cupboard space in the kitchen and it’s very modern looking. I couldn’t imagine it looking much better.”

Councillor Mike Connolly said, “The flash floods were devastating and life changing for many people living on the estates that were hit. Six Town Housing have been working hard to restore the homes of affected tenants to help bring them back to a sense of normality.”
