If you live in a flat with its own front door to the outside, think about where you can store the scooter in your flat. You also need to make sure your mobility scooter is secure. If your property is too small to accommodate a scooter, you will need to purchase a lockable storage shed. You will need to request permission to put up a shed from your area housing office.
If you live in a flat that has a communal hallway, please speak to your Neighbourhood Housing Officer. Communal hallways have to be kept clear of items that could cause any risk to:
- other residents
- the emergency services
- visitors to the block
Your Neighbourhood Housing Officer will run through your options and if you decide to go ahead with purchasing a scooter will complete a risk assessment. This will identify any issues that need addressing by you or us before a scooter can be purchased. Only when you have received written permission from us can you go ahead with ordering a scooter.
