A FACELIFT scheme has been completed on a group of properties in Thornhill Lees.
The Dewsbury Housing Market Renewal project has finished work updating six properties at Ingham Road.
The re-vamp, led by Kirklees Council, has taken a year to complete, improving the appearance and quality of the buildings.
The facelift included re-instating metal railings and installing new gutters, doors and windows.
Improvement officer Paul Needham said: “We wanted everybody involved – regardless of their income.
“From the council’s point of view, it will raise the profile of the area.
“All the residents are pleased with the work we have done and it has been a very worthwhile project.”
Low maintenance materials have been used and, after an inspection in six months, the upkeep will become the responsibility of the owners.
Clr Liz Smaje, who has responsibility for leisure and neighbourhood services in Kirklees Council’s cabinet, said: “Facelift schemes are important.
“As well as benefiting local residents, they also have a positive impact on how this area looks which can raise economic confidence.”
