SHETLAND Islands Council’s housing service says it is pausing routine repair work until the end of June as a result of a backlog due to Covid.
In this time staff will prioritise emergency and urgent housing repairs for tenants.
Essential work to empty houses will also be done to allow properties to be let.
Details of what is classed as emergency, urgent and routine repairs can be found in the tenants handbook and on the SIC housing website.
Tenants can continue to report repairs via 01595 744399 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shetland Islands Council said it would like to thank tenants for their patience as the housing service returns to a normal level of service.
