Shared areas

photo of The Spinney extra care scgene restaurantShared areas include stairwells in blocks of flats, communal facilities and walkways, and external areas maintained by us. 

We carry out regular checks to ensure these areas are maintained to a good standard. Fire risk assessments are also completed to check that escape routes are kept clear and all fire safety equipment and barriers are maintained and used correctly. See our fire safety page for more on this.

If you spot any emergency lighting or fire safety equipment (smoke detectors) in need of repair please report it immediately on 01733 347135.

In communal areas with shared facilities we carry out regular water safe testing to control the risk of legionella and other organisms in the water supply.

For information on gritting in shared areas see our cold weather and gritting page.
