THE organisation taking over council housing services in Ellesmere Port and Neston has vowed to work with residents to bring investment and opportunity to the towns.
Plus Dane Group chief executive Ken Perry wrote to tenants, promising the group would not only deliver a first-class service for their homes but also work to improve well-being and prosperity.
Mr Perry wrote: “We are absolutely committed to providing not just a great housing service, but to help make a real difference in Ellesmere Port and Neston more widely.
“We work to invest in neighbourhoods as well as homes, because we want to help create great places to live where tenants and residents have a good quality of life and better opportunities and choice.
“We believe very strongly that we can only do this by working closely with you to make sure that the work we do to improve your neighbourhood meets your needs and aspirations.”
Plus Dane officially takes over the running of housing management services in July.
Plus Dane will also then open its new office at 7-9 Civic Way. Existing offices in Neston Town Hall will be retained.
Council housing staff will also transfer to Plus Dane once the handover takes place.
Mr Perry added: “Over the coming weeks and months you’ll start to notice Plus Dane Group out and about in your neighbourhoods and at local events.
“We want to meet with as many tenants and residents as possible to hear your views and thoughts on what you think will help to make your neighbourhood an even better place to live.”
The Civic Way office will be the new base for about 60 of the council’s housing staff transferring to Plus Dane as part of the £100m contract, which will see the housing association take responsibility for providing housing services for 15,000 Ellesmere Port and Neston tenants and a repairs and maintenance service for about 5,800 homes.
