The property in question has unsuitable shower
facilities to support the resettled family. We need to pursue a
license to alter under our agreement with the MOD to replace the
existing mixer deck tap with a thermostatic mixing valve capable of
filling the bath or supplying a shower. We also need to fit a 1 bar
twin impeller booster pump below the bath supplied locally to
supply this valve only.
The total cost of the works will be £2,544.00 and can be sourced out of the refugee budget.
In implementing these works we are not causing any damage to the MOD property
Implementing this bathing and shower facility
is essential to the wellbeing of the resettled tenants and can
comply with their religious and health and wellbeing needs.
If we were not to do these works we would not
be meeting the needs of the tenants or meeting our obligation to
acting in accordance with equalities and diversity law.
