New repairs contracts for Birmingham’s council tenants

By on 31/03/2016 in News

Birmingham’s council tenants will start to benefit from an improved repairs and maintenance service this week following an intensive evaluation process that also sees substantial savings estimated at around £13 million over the next four years.

Until now, most tenants have two contractors to deal with – one for repairs and one for any issues with gas. From Friday 1 April the new four year contracts will operate on a geographical basis and will deal with all repairs, maintenance, gas servicing and home improvements.

New arrangements will see-

– tenants living in the north of the city supported by Keepmoat
– tenants living in west central and east Birmingham supported by Wates Living Space Maintenance
– tenants living in the south of the city supported by Willmott Dixon
