Located north east of the town centre at Brownhills and at the edge of the borough boundary with Staffordshire, the Avenues is a pre-war estate of 210 3 bedroom family homes. Many have been bought through Right to Buy and 120 remain under tenant management. The TMO have managed the properties since 1999, and became part of Watmos in 2003.
All houses have a new central heating system, new kitchens and bathrooms. Recently a programme of cladding and rendering was carried out, which has successfully reduced heating bills, for this project the Avenues TMO won a National ‘Green Apple’ award .
We are always looking to improve the estate:
- The tenants voted to renew fencing and gates – this has been done.
- The children’s playground has recently been refurbished – again initiated by tenants.
What we do
The TMO carries out a full range of housing services including allocations/lettings, repairs, environmental improvements, tenancy/estate management and housing advice. We also try to build community spirit by running social activities and providing facilities for the children who live on the estate.
