The Association carries out regular inspections of its estates to ensure they are maintained in a good condition. During the inspection staff record any areas of disrepair, untidiness and check the condition of any common landscaping that the Association is responsible for.
We undertake estate inspections of every development 3 times each year. Details of our inspections are published monthly and can be accessed below:
Specific dates and times of inspections will be posted on Facebook and text to tenants prior to the inspections being carried out.
Would you like to get involved? Would you like to see any changes in your estate? What do you think we could be doing better? If you would like to discuss any issues or feedback within your estate, please contact us on 01259 722899.

You will be given instructions on what can be uplifted and you will require to pay at the point of arranging the uplift. The uplift service is limited to 8 items per single uplift. The Association subsidises the uplift service and you are entitled to two uplifts per year at a reduced cost of £20 each (or 1 double uplift if more than 8 items). If you require an additional uplift or have more than 8 items to be uplifted in a single visit, this can still be processed however you will require to pay the full rate of £40. We subsidise a total of 20 uplifts per month across our stock and you may be advised when you call that this limit is reached. You can then choose to pay the full £40 or wait until the next month. Black bags do not form part of the bulk uplift service and Clackmannanshire Council will not lift these. If you do have black bags, report these to Clackmannanshire Council and necessary information will be passed back to the Association to action.
From 1st April 2023, Fife Council are offering free bulk uplifts for those living in their area. Given the level of responses they have received, there may be a delay in getting your uplift arranged.

Clackmannanshire Council now charge for the collection and disposal of garden waste which requires the purchase of a permit to allow your brown bin to be collected.
The Association subsidises this service which is for tenants with gardens who require their garden waste collected. For example, if you have a hard-landscaped garden (e.g. slabs, paving, chips) with no garden waste we will not subsidise you.
If you would like to be included in the permit scheme please contact us on either of the following methods:
➢ By telephone to our office on 01259 722899
➢ By email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you receive your permit all enquiries relating to collection dates, contamination or any other aspect should be directed to Clackmannanshire Council who run the service.
