Housing promises made early
ACTIONS promised to tenants – when North Somerset Council’s housing stock was transferred in 2006 – have all been met a year early.
The council made promises to tenants that the association would complete 113 actions within six years of transfer.
Alliance Homes - formerly NSHousing - is a community-based, not for profit social enterprise who took over the ownership and management responsibilities of 6,500 homes in the area.
As a result more than 4,000 high-security exterior doors and more than 1,900 new energy-efficient heating systems have been installed in tenants’ homes.
Deputy leader and executive member for housing, Elfan Ap Rees, said: “Over �50million has been invested in homes and service provision has been enhanced.
