Birmingham council house tenants recognised Birmingham City Council staff and contractors who have given excellent service at a special awards ceremony last night (Thursday 15 October).
The Performance Monitoring Group (PMG), which is made up of tenants from the City Housing Liaison Board, held the awards ceremony at the Council House to recognise and celebrate the work of excellent contractors, local teams and heads of service who work for the City Council.
The PMG scrutinises service performance and made their decision based on which services performed well, met or exceeded targets for 2014/15.
Joan Goodwin, Chair of City Housing Liaison Board, said: “This year the PMG awarded an amazing 18 gold and 15 platinum awards. To receive a platinum award you must achieve four consecutive gold awards, so it’s wonderful news that more of our contractors and local teams are achieving the platinum standard. This is great news for the city and great news for tenants.”
Platinum winners included Birmingham City Council’s repairs teams, rent team, estate management team, capital works team, repairs contractors, Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust and HRA Finance.
There were also individual awards for nine council officers, including the service director for housing transformation Rob James, and the council’s cabinet member for Neighbourhood Management and Homes, Cllr John Cotton.
