Council home tenants to be consulted on repairs contract
2:00pm Monday 27th January 2014 in News
COUNCIL housing tenants in Brentwood are to be consulted over who is chosen to carry out repairs to their properties.
Towards the end of 2013 the contracts worth £5million for maintenance at the houses and flats operated as social housing by Brentwood Council went to tender.
A number of bids were received by the authority who will now speak with residents living in the properties before selecting the winner.
Jan Pound, councillor responsible for community services, said: “We have been very pleased with the interest and the quality of responses that we have received for the works.
“Our officers, tenant representatives and a cross-party working group of councillors have thoroughly evaluated the responses.
“Our leaseholders will have the opportunity to make any representations to us before we make the decision in February.”
