Stalybridge Storm Update

Stalybridge Storm Update

We are continuing with repair work to homes in Tameside that were damaged by Storm Gerrit, and which particularly affected those in the Carrbrook area of Stalybridge.

Specialist scaffolding, roofing, property maintenance contractors and tree surgeons were on the scene the morning after the storm and have continued to work with us on repairing damage to our properties since then.

We contacted affected residents immediately to establish what support they needed and we had more than 80 emergency calls to our repair line in the first 24 hours. This meant we had to prioritise work to homes with major roof or structural damage first, followed by other homes with more minor damage.

All homes that need roof or structural repairs have now been visited and assessed, with 198 jobs reported. Of those we have completed almost half, including;

  • 58 roofing repairs,
  • 12 chimney and brickwork repairs

We have 37 reports of damage to fences which will be dealt with shortly and we are progressing with quotes for those.

Please bear with us while we continue to work through these repairs and the significant amount of work that this involves.
