Housing repairs alpha weeknotes - 10 january

  1. 1. t: 0345 257 7520 e: w: a: Unit B7, 8-9 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6NU Page 1 of 4 Housingrepairsalphaweek notes - 10 January We’re working on an alpha project with Greenwich, Southwark, Lincoln and South Kesteven councils exploring approaches for the design of a common pattern for reporting, diagnosing and scheduling of housing repairs. The project is part of MHCLG’s local digital collaboration fund. We send out week notes to update the team and stakeholders on the progress of the project. The week notes will highlight the key things we’re working on, acknowledge achievements and show progress. They will also outline any blockers, and what we’re planning to work on next. Our first show and tell will be on Monday 20th Jan at 2:30 in Southwark Council. We’ll make a recording available shortly afterwards. Along with our show and tells, this is the main way you will find outabout the project so please read on. Get in touch with Alex with any questions or feedback. Whatarewethinking about? After an inception period to set the project upand agree the overall vision, we just started our first two week delivery sprint. In total, we’ll be working for 3 sprints (6 weeks) so we’ll be working at pace to make sure we deliver the project outputs. These outputs include a prototype, a recommendation report, a user research report, a business case, and importantly a clear understanding of whether a common pattern is a viable proposition. We’ve set two overall visions for this work, one for residents and one for local authorities (see the following page). We need tobe clear aboutthe scope of this work – we’re exploring approaches to the reporting, diagnosing and booking/scheduling of repairs. We also need to test the journey for a repair type that is sufficiently representative of the overall journey. Initially, we’re looking at the journey for leaks and damp, or what we’re describing as ‘water being somewhere it shouldn’t be’.
