Article for Council Housing Tenants
“The following article will be provided for our Council Tenants in a newsletter being sent by our Housing team during the week commencing 21st October. Officers felt it would be useful for Members to have sight of the article ahead of its distribution.
Service Improvement – New Group Company Structure
In July 2019 the Cabinet made a decision to go ahead and set up a group of wholly owned Council companies to deliver a number of different activities that will improve services and opportunities for residents of the District. The current arrangements for delivering our maintenance service has come to a contractual end. The council now has a great opportunity to think about how to improve on our current offer to customers.
One of the proposed new companies will deliver the maintenance service to residents and will operate in much the same way as is currently provided, but will offer additional opportunities such as greater investment in technology. This will enable you to book your own appointments ‘on line’, track your repairs progress, and make appointments that are convenient to your work/life commitments.
Many Councils across the country are taking this approach, and have seen an increase in satisfaction. “
