To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what recent estimate he has made of the number of military homes owned by Annington Homes that are awaiting repairs.
2 February 2021
As of 29 January 2021, 9,861 occupied Annington Homes properties in England and Wales were awaiting reported response repair action.
Properties will be attended to in line with the contractual timeframes for repairs once categorised as Emergency, Critical, Urgent or Routine. The number of outstanding repairs per category is shown in the following table.
In December 2020, 95.38% of all repairs reported were responded to within their required timeframes; this exceeded the required performance target.
The Ministry of Defence provides a prioritised response repair service for all Service Family Accommodation in the UK. Seasonal variation normally results in a repair spike during the winter months. This results from factors such as inclement weather causing issues to property and a higher rate of heating faults being reported.
