Have your say on housing services in Haringey
Residents across Haringey can now have their say on a proposal to bring housing services back under the direct management of the Local Authority.
In an effort to integrate services and ensure residents are receiving the best possible service, a consultation has been launched today (August 23) for tenants and leaseholders to voice their views on a major change in housing services.
Homes for Haringey, which was set up in 2006, is currently responsible for the day-to-day management of council owned homes in the borough, including housing repairs, leaseholder services, housing management and responding to homelessness.
In order to provide a more streamlined service for our 20,000 tenants and leaseholders and support our commitment to build at least 3,000 new council homes by 2032, the council is recommending housing services are brought back under direct management.
Tenant and leaseholder views are being sought on the proposals which cover accountability, integrated services, value for money and service improvement.
Cllr Julie Davies, Cabinet Member for Employment, Skills and Corporate Services said:
“We are determined to deliver on our commitment to build at least 3,000 new council homes by 2032 and we believe now is the right time to bring housing services back in-house.
“We want to work in collaboration with our residents and ensure they remain a key part of the decision-making process.
“We hope tenants will agree to remove all the barriers so that the council and Homes for Haringey can work together and coordinate services more effectively as one organisation and provide an all-round better service for our residents.”
All those eligible to take part in the consultation will receive a consultation pack in the post or can complete the online questionnaire.
There will also be a series of online events, in-person events and focus groups held to enable tenants and leaseholders to participate in the consultation in the way that best suits their needs.
The consultation runs from 23 August to 17 October 2021. Full information on the consultation and upcoming events can be seen at www.haringey.gov.uk/hfh-proposal
