Kirklees Council is set to approve plans to bring the management and maintenance of its housing stock back in-house next week.

Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing (KNH) has managed the council’s housing since 2002. However, an independent report from the Local Government Association (LGA) found a new model of housing management would best deliver the council’s ambitions.

The council’s cabinet member for housing and democracy, Cllr Cathy Scott, said: ‘A new model means we can work together more effectively to achieve the things that really matter to people and we will be accountable, as a single organisation, for delivering them.

’At the heart of this new relationship are tenants. These arrangements will give residents a strong voice in shaping their homes and communities for the long term. We’ve started this process with a listening exercise and that is the spirit in which we will continue.’

If approved, KNH’s responsibilities will transfer to the council at the end of March 2021.
