Council signs 30-year deal with ALMO

Cheltenham Borough Council and Cheltenham Borough Homes have signed an agreement securing their successful partnership for the next 30 years.

The agreement covers the management and maintenance of around 5,000 council-owned homes, along with a commitment to improve and regenerate communities and support residents.

Stuart Hutton, chair of the CBH Board said: ‘For over a decade the partnership we have with the Council has allowed us to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people living in the homes we manage, so we are delighted to secure our position in the community until 2045.

'Our role goes far beyond the traditional management and maintenance of council housing. More than just a landlord, CBH is placed at the centre of the community and by working closely with our customers we have expanded our services, providing opportunities and support to help people improve their life chances and build communities where people want to live now and in the future.’ <>Cllr Steve Jordan, leader of Cheltenham Borough Council, said: ‘Over the last 10 years Cheltenham Borough Homes has done a good job in managing the flats and houses owned by the council as well as providing wider services and support for the residents who live in them.

'This gives us the confidence to enter a new 30 year agreement to continue that work and in developing a programme of building new affordable homes to help meet the need in Cheltenham.’
