Under used community rooms - each of our blocks of flats had been allocated a community room for social purposes but it was clear from monitoring the usage patterns that a few were literally never used. After consultation with the residents, some have been returned as single bedroom flats, generating income for the council of approximately £2.5k a year and also reducing the housing waiting list. So far we have converted 3 back to flats and are looking to convert a further 2.
