High-Rise Living Board

The High-Rise Living Board is a group of customers from across our eight tower blocks, brought together to represent the needs of people living in high-rise buildings.

This includes everything from safety, security and management to lettings, access and improvements to the buildings or services. Some of the ideas shared by members so far are:

  • Fire safety information
  • Safety and security of the blocks and residents
  • Parking and access
  • Support for vulnerable customers
  • People with mobility issues living on higher floors
  • Grounds Maintenance
  • Cleaning and the role of the caretaker
  • CCTV and security
  • Review of the Lettings and Allocations policy
  • Storage facilities
  • Problems caused by sub-letting
  • A Concierge Service / dedicated building manager

We’d like to have at least two High-Rise Living Board members from each of our eight tower blocks: Circle Court, Clifford Court, Empress Court, Grafton Court, Princess Court, Pickford Court, Stretford House and Manor Court.

Where are meetings held?

Meetings take place every 6 weeks in one of the tower blocks and other locations around Trafford.

The next meeting will take place on Monday 26th March 6-7.30pm at Manor Court. Buffet food will be provided from 5.30pm.

How do I get involved?

If you live in one of the blocks and would like to get involved, just fill in the form below, email: or call 0300 777 7777 and speak to Julie Nelson-Hall.  

What has the group achieved so far?

Trial parking permit schemes have been agreed at some of the blocks following discussions where issues in key areas were identified.  A visit was also carried out to Callow Mount in Sheffield to look at sprinklers system options in relation to fire safety.

The next focus will be allocations and lettings. The group will also discuss what could go in a ‘Welcome Pack’ for new tenants moving into a high-rise property.
