Dunbar Way Garden Equipment Borrowing Scheme
Pacific Link Housing won a grant to purchase garden equipment for the residents of Dunbar Way. The equipment will allow residents to maintain their gardens and lawns and potentially develop a community garden. The Borrowing Scheme is run by PLH with the Dunbar Way Tenant Group and aims to develop community pride in the Dunbar Way Estate.
Who is eligible?
All residents of Dunbar Way are eligible to borrow the garden equipment, once your “borrowing rights” have been approved.
In general, when applying for borrowing rights, you must:
• Be an approved occupant of a PLH household
• Have a satisfactory rent and non-rent payment record
• Have no history of anti-social; threatening or aggressive behaviour
• Not be in breach of your residential tenancy lease or have any NCAT orders against you.
How do I apply?
Contact Pacific Link Housing for an Application and Acknowledgement form. Complete the form, return it and you will be notified once your ‘’borrowing rights’ are approved. If there is an issue with your application, PLH reserves the right to exclude tenants for a period until relevant issues have been rectified.
How do I borrow equipment?
Once your borrowing rights are approved, you can contact Adrian from the Tenant Management Group for access to the equipment shed. You must not lend the equipment to anyone else.
What equipment is available?
The equipment includes:
– lawn edger
– hedge shears
– hand tools
– weed sprayer
Petrol for the lawnmower will be purchased by Adrian (a jerry can is provided).
For their own protection, residents are required to use the safety equipment including ear protectors, and goggles when using powered equipment. Gloves are also provided and tenants should always wear enclosed shoes when working with equipment. Training in safe use of the equipment is available from PLH contractors. Tenants affected by drugs or alcohol will not be permitted to borrow equipment.
Signing In and Out
When borrowing equipment you will be asked to sign it out and return it by the agreed date and time. Equipment should be cleaned before returning.
Should any equipment be damaged or require maintenance please report this immediately to Adrian.
The aim of the Scheme is to assist residents in maintaining their properties and developing community pride in the Dunbar Way Estate.
Pacific Link Housing will monitor the Scheme and if there are problems such as theft, excessive damage or unsustainable costs, PLH reserves the right to cancel the Scheme and reallocate the equipment.
