Yellow Cars Welcomes Badly Needed £60 Million Injection into 70-Year-Old Birmingham City Council Housing

An investment of £59 million will improve the current stock of council homes in the city, many of which are approaching 70 years old.

Darren Thorpe, Yellow Cars Managing Director said, “We have repeated listened to the concerns of our customers and families living in the area. It’s the basics really that many require, especially heating, insulation, kitchen, bathroom, window and roof upgrades. Almost 6,000 houses are set to receive this much needed revamp and we’re very happy to hear about this.”

Yellow Cars saw in a statement from Birmingham City Council that Councillor John Cotton is quoted as saying, “We currently own and manage 63,138 residential properties and have made substantial improvements to thousands of our properties over the last few years. The average age of our properties is approaching 70 years so investing in our stock is essential in order to safeguard its condition.”

The Councillor continued in a press release issue by the Council by stating, “Not only will this substantially improve our tenants’ homes, but by replacing inefficient heating systems, we can further reduce the city’s carbon dioxide emissions and lower our tenants’ heating bills.”

Finally, the Yellow Cars Managing Direction said, “I’m also excited to hear that Cabinet is looking to reduce rent by 1% in the area. This is very welcome news indeed for the families we service at Yellow Cars. I just hope it won’t be completely wiped out by other service charges on the cards. We care deeply about the local community and want them to enjoy a better quality of living as quickly as possible. We hope there won’t be any undue delays in delivering on the promises.”

The award winning Yellow Cars is honoured to celebrate 21 years in business in the West Midlands in 2016.
