Letter to the Editor


I am appalled at Angus Council’s policy regarding home redecoration after upgrading work has been undertaken, not to mention all the upheaval.

The current redecoration grant is a measly £200 and has to cover materials and labour.

Certain tenants like myself, who are incapacitated or whose families are not in a position to decorate for them, have to fork out for a decorator themselves.

Why should tenants have to pay good money out of their own pockets for the jobs the council want done?

We are not all well-off you know.

I, for one, will never allow any work to be undertaken in my home ever again until the council gets its act together and introduces redecoration into its work plan and starts treating tenants and their properties with a bit more respect and decorum.

Your etc,
