Housing Tribunal Decision, Newcastle City Council; Improvement Notice

February 23, 2015

Property: 31 Fern Avenue, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 2QU

Case Reference: MASN/00CJ/HIN/2014/0014

The case concerns an appeal against an Improvement Notice served by Newcastle City Council upon the Applicant regarding two Category 1 hazards, excess cold and fire. The Tribunal had been informed when the Improvement Notice had been issued, the property was in multiple occupation; at Inspection however, the Tribunal found that the property was unoccupied.

Both parties requested a paper determination; the Appellant informed the tribunal that he intended to refurbish the house into a family home. The Respondents informed the Tribunal that they sought only suitable casements and glazing and suitable fire protection to remove the identified hazards.
