We want to make sure that our residents live in a pleasant, decent, safe and secure environment.

You can report any concerns about your local area to your local Neighbourhood Office.

Our Community Safety Team also carry out regular patrols around the Falkirk Council area.

If you are a council tenant, you are responsible for keeping your home, garden and any common areas well maintained. This is set out in your Tenancy Agreement and Good Neighbour Agreement. If you don't do this, we will contact you to discuss what action is needed. We may take action against your tenancy if the situation does not improve.

Estate walkabouts

Estate walkabouts are local events that encourage customers to take a closer look at their own neighbourhoods, and identify areas for improvement with the support of staff from their Neighbourhood Office/One Stop Shop. Details of upcoming walkabouts are below:

The following are examples of estate issues. Please use the links to find out how we can help you resolve any problems.

Close cleaning

It is the responsibility of all residents of a block to ensure the close is kept clean. The only exception is where we provide a close cleaning service. We charge for this service and you will be told if this applies to you. The Neighbourhood Office will take action if there are any close cleaning problems.

Gardens

You are responsible for keeping gardens and shared drying greens clean and tidy.

If you are a council tenant and we have concerns about your garden, we will ask you to make improvements. We may take action if there no improvements are made and will charge you if we have to do any work to your garden.

If you are not a council tenant and we have concerns about your garden, we will ask you to make improvements. If your garden is causing a nuisance, such as vermin, we may ask Environmental Health to take action. They may charge you for this work.

If you are having trouble maintaining your garden, you may be able to get help from Garden Aid.
