Local Space take on repairs management for 700 extra homes

We are pleased to announce that Local Space have recently taken on responsibility for the repairs of more than 700 extra homes. The transfer of repairs responsibility from Newham Council takes place as part of a review partnership agreement that we entered into in 2016.

 

Our CEO Josie Parsons says that this is a “transformational milestone for Local Space and testament to the success of the original ‘leaseback’ model that we’ve seen this growth into a fully independent housing association”.

 

Darren Levy, director of housing at Newham Council, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Local Space in taking this next step and look forward to working with them in the future and enabling them to do more to support us in addressing housing need in Newham.”

 

This is the first step towards us managing all 3,000 of our homes in-house, with a phased approach ensuring a smooth transition for our customers.
