Islington Council is set to bring the management of homes back in-house once its current Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract comes to an end.

The PF12 contract with Partners, covering more than 4,000 council homes, is set to end in April 2022.

A consultation with local residents has revealed 91% are in favour of the council delivering services directly. The council has now opted to being housing repairs and maintenance back in-house

Cllr Diarmaid Ward, the council’s executive member for housing and development, said: ‘Bringing these homes back under council management will allow us to put customer satisfaction and quality service provision at the heart of these services, while at the same time delivering value for money for all of our residents.’

A spokesperson for Partners said: ‘We are pleased that residents have supported the council’s preferred option for when our PFI2 project ends and we will continue to work closely with the council to ensure a smooth transition.’
