Housing service transfers back to council

Published Monday, 23 March 2015

From 1 April, Enfield Homes will no longer provide the council’s landlord services and the transfer of these services to Enfield Council will be completed.

For existing tenants and leaseholders services will operate as they do now and in the overwhelming majority of cases they will have the same housing officer – who will work for Enfield Council instead of Enfield Homes.

 Contact details will also remain the same and all web based services will be found within the Enfield Council website.

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said, “The Enfield Homes Board and staff worked hard improving customer satisfaction and delivering £125 million of decent homes and major capital works.

 “This excellent work has secured a strong foundation for us to continue working with residents and since we are retaining the staff it will be business as usual. My thanks go to all those who have worked so hard at Enfield Homes.”

 Departing Enfield Homes, chair, Vicky Dungate, thanked all board members, councillors and staff for the enormous support they had given to Enfield Homes.

 She said, “I wish for the smoothest transition in the efforts to continue to deliver excellent services to residents, which has always been our main purpose and intention.”

 Paul Davey, Assistant Housing Director promised to build on Enfield Homes’ success, saying, “ Not only will we continue to deliver high quality services, but we will also take advantage of closer working links with our council colleagues to deliver a more coordinated and improved performance. I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have contributed to this success.”
