THE organisation in charge of Colchester’s council homes has celebrated its 10th birthday by being awarded a contract for the next 10 years.
Colchester Borough Homes has signed a deal with Colchester Council to manage 6,476 council properties until 2023.
Under the deal, the body will take on more responsibility for services previously run by the council, including homelessness advice and administering the Disabled Facilities Grants and Energy Performance Certificates.
Under the changes, the two authority’s customer service teams will be merged, while everyday repair services will be made more flexible.
