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.
