Communal heating - Find out when we will be switching your heating on

Image of  PDHU

We’ve received a number of requests from our residents to switch the communal heating system on.

The heating season starts on 1 October each year. On occasion and in periods of colder temperatures, the heating is turned on prior to this date. This is usually with agreement with the local area offices.

Due to the low temperatures in the last couple of weeks and feedback from residents, we will begin turning the heating on for all blocks served by PDHU  from Wednesday 20 September.

For other blocks, please check the list below:

Block Date
Wellington Road 20 September

We are unable to turn the heating on sooner than the scheduled dates due to planned maintenance work that has to be completed before the heating is turned on. We are doing all that we can to complete this work as quickly as possible.
