Preventative repairs and maintenance

Preventative repairs and maintenance works help keep houses safe and include safety audits, replacements of residual current devices and smokes alarms.

In 2018-19, 70 homes in Lajamanu and 30 in Kalkarindji have been scoped for preventative repairs and maintenance and upgrade works. A contract was awarded for works on 10 homes in Kalkarindji to a local Aboriginal Business Enterprise with four homes completed. Works have been awarded for 20 homes in Lajamanu with five completed.
